Two pedestrians and a cyclist were killed in a spate of bloodshed on Wednesday night that included two hit-and-run drivers.
The violence began at around 7:10 a.m. in the dangerous Borough Park section of Brooklyn when Chaim Blum, 23, was killed after two cars slammed into each other and then one of them struck him on the sidewalk of 13th Avenue and 50th Street.
Blum was merely standing on the southeast corner of the intersection when the 27-year-old driver of a Honda minivan, who was driving southbound on 13th Avenue struck the driver of a Toyota minivan that was traveling east on 50th Street. The crash sent the Toyota careening into Blum, causing severe body and head trauma.
He was taken to Maimonides Medical Center, where he died as the neighborhood celebrated the first night of Passover, one of the holiest periods on the Jewish calendar.
