Out-of-control car plows into Canarsie deli

(12/29/06) CANARSIE &舑; Residents in Canarsie say a major accident near the intersection of Ralph and Foster avenues is proof a tragedy isn&舗;t too far on the horizon.

Police say two cars, a red Mini Cooper and a red Camaro, lost control while trying to avoid a tractor-trailer. The Mini Cooper then plowed into a nearby deli. Fortunately, no one was killed. However, residents say it&舗;s only a matter of time before the notoriously dangerous intersection becomes the site of a fatal accident.

Some witnesses claim the two cars were racing before the accident. Others say the truck driver was at fault. However, police believe the two cars were speeding based on the force of impact.
