Three young boys and one adult were struck by a taxi on Cadman Plaza West in Downtown Brooklyn Tuesday morning at roughly 11:15 a.m., according to FDNY. The accident took place at the entrance to Cadman Plaza Park, across the street from a residential tower at 200 Cadman Plaza West in Brooklyn Heights.

All four were taken by their request to New York Presbyterian-Cornell Hospital in Manhattan. A Fire Department spokesperson told the Brooklyn Eagle on Tuesday afternoon that the victims were all in serious but stable condition.

A sports camp was taking place in the park at that time. Further details were unavailable at press time.
