Three young men miraculously survived a horrific crash that left their car almost completely wrapped around a tree in Brooklyn early Sunday.
The accident took place at 3:30 a.m. when the driver, who was heading north on Ocean Parkway between avenues P and O in Midwood, lost control of the white Acura and it slammed into the tree.
The names of the 24-year-old driver and his passengers, who are 20 and 21, were not immediately released.
Firefighters said they had to use three Jaws of Life’ tools to pry the three out of the mangled wreckage.
The driver and the younger passenger were in stable condition at Lutheran Hospital.
The older passenger was in critical condition at Kings County Hospital.
Cops said there were no immediate indications of alcohol or drug use, but they’re looking into whether speed was a factor.
The impact left the car’s tires blown out, its hood sheared off, and the windshield shattered.
Passers-by gaped at the sight of the wrecked car, which at a quick glance appeared to have a tree growing out of it.
Neighbors said the crash was an accident waiting to happen.
“Ocean Parkway is like a raceway at night,’’ said Boris Berzova, 51.
“I saw the aftermath of that crash. They had to be speeding.
“It’s a miracle more people don’t get killed out here.”
Vilma Gondor, 32, said, “I am scared to walk my dog out here. The cars rip by so fast and so close to each other and the sidewalk. It seems like every week, there is a crash out here.
“People drive way too fast,” Gondor said. “I thought [Mayor] de Blasio was going to do something about that.”
