EAST FLATBUSH - Some Brooklyn residents say it's only a matter of time before a busy East Flatbush intersection turns into the scene of a fatal crash.

Kings Highway, Linden Boulevard, Ralph, and Remsen avenues meet at a junction that has proven to be confusin for drivers. Some motorists ignore the ?no turning? signs, making matters worse. Drivers say they race through the intersection just to avoid getting hit by people making illegal turns.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) says while car, bike and pedestrian accidents occur at the intersection, it has no records of fatalities since 2004. The DOT says so far this year, six accidents alone have occurred where Linden Boulevard and Kings Highway meet.
