NEW YORK (AP) - The driver of an SUV that plunged about 50 feet into an inactive construction site in New York City has miraculously survived.
Authorities say the 49-year-old woman lost control of her vehicle in Brooklyn Wednesday morning. She crashed through a wooden partition blocking the construction site after striking a bicyclist and three parked vehicles.
The SUV flipped and came to rest on its roof at the construction site about 50 feet below. There were no workers at the site at the time of the accident.
The bicyclist and the driver of the SUV both suffered minor injuries.
Police say the driver was trying to make a U-turn on Coney Island Avenue when she lost control of her vehicle.
No charges were filed.
