Council Member Farah Louis was involved in a motor vehicle accident at about 7:10 a.m., Monday. She was rushed to the hospital in serious condition but is expected to make a full recovery.
Through a spokesperson, Louis said she is praying for the recovery of the other motorist involved in the accident, who is also hospitalized.
The accident occurred within the confines of the 63rd precinct on Kings Highway and Avenue J. A 32-year-old man was riding on a motorcycle riding southbound when he crashed into Louis’ vehicle who was heading eastbound in a T-bone collision. Louis was not speeding and was driving through a green light when the motorcycle crashed into the side of her vehicle.
EMS responded and both Louis and the man were taken to the hospital. The man only suffered minor injuries.
No arrests were made but an investigation is ongoing by the NYPD’s collision and investigation squad.
Louis currently represents the 45th district of Brooklyn. Preliminary unofficial results from the Board of Elections show that she has retained her seat in the primary.
