THE COLLISION HAPPENED LAST NIGHT IN FLUSHING. AS CBS 2 HAZEL SANCHEZ REPORT, WITNESSES TRIED TO HELP THE VICTIMS. Reporter: TWO MANGLED VEHICLES. TWO LIVES LOST. ALL OF A SUDDEN I HEARD TIRES SCREECHING AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I SEE SMOKE AND DUST, LIKE CAR PARTS FLYING INTO THE AIR. Reporter: WEY CHEN AND HER MOTHER CALLED 911 WHEN THEY HEARD THE VEHICLES COLLIDING ON 210th STREET OFF FORD HARDING EXPRESSWAY. DR. KOZOS HEARD THE CRASH INSIDE HIS HOME AND RUSHED FROM HIS HOME TO HELP. THEY WERE STRAPPED IN WITH THE SEATBELTS AND I CUT THE SEATBELTS OFF OF THEM. Reporter: THE TWO WERE IN THE BACKSEAT OF THE SILVER TOYOTA CAMRY. BOTH WERE KILLED. THE GRANDFATHER, GRANDMOTHER, AND A SECOND CHILD, ALSO IN THE CAR, SURVIVED, BUT REMAIN HOSPITALIZED. POLICE SAY THE DRIVER OF THIS WHITE SUV WAS SPEEDING, CROSSED THE DOUBLE YELLOW LINE, AND THEN JUMPED THE SIDEWALK. WITNESSES SAY THE GRANDFATHER DRIVING THE CAMRY WAS IN SHOCK. HE WAS BARELY CONSCIOUS. HE WAS BLEEDING FROM THE HEAD. HE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. Reporter: NEIGHBORS SAY THEY CAN’T BELIEVE THE EXTENT OF THE DAMAGE. THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED IN A 15 MILE-AN-HOUR SCHOOL ZONE. WITH A SPEED BUMP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET.
