NYC: Driver, 26, killed by three-car crash in Brooklyn

A 26-year-old driver was killed in a three-car crash that began when the tire blew out of a BMW SUV in Brooklyn early Wednesday, cops said.

The caught-on-video smash-up happened on Grand Street near Manhattan Avenue in Williamsburg around 1:10 a.m., when the right rear tire blew out of a white BMW X7 SUV heading west on Grand Street, causing the driver, a 30-year-old man, to lose control, authorities said.

The motorist veered into the eastbound lane, striking a black Honda Odyssey with Alexander Ulloa-Toribio, 26, behind the wheel, according to cops and footage from the scene obtained by News 12 reporter Katie Lusso.

The driver then slammed into another car, a red Honda Element with a 34-year-old man behind the wheel, police said.
