BROOKLYN - Police were called to Flatlands Tuesday morning after a car crash at East 56th Street and Avenue N.

The children allegedly had to be rescued from the roof of the car, but everyone was OK. Emergency workers say all of the people involved suffered minor injuries and were treated at area hospitals.
