CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (WABC) — Three pedestrians, including two children, were struck after a car jumped a curb and slammed into a building in Brooklyn Wednesday morning.

It happened around 8 a.m. on St. John Place and Nostrand Avenue in the Crown Heights section.

Police say a 43-year-old man was walking with a 9-year-old boy and 11-year-old boy — possibly a father and his sons — were walking on St. John Place when the vehicle, traveling from St. John Place onto Nostrand Avenue, went up on the sidewalk and struck them.

The car struck the roll down gate in front of the Two Saints Restaurant, which was closed at the time.

The victims were taken to Methodist Hospital, and they’re expected to survive.

The 45-year-old driver of the vehicle was taken into custody with possible charges pending.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
