NEW YORK, NY – The ongoing violent crime wave plaguing New York City continued when surveillance video caught a dramatic scene on Thursday as a teen in Brooklyn actually drove his car onto a sidewalk – ultimately crashing in an attempt to escape a gang-related shooting attempt, reports say.

The 19 year-old victim was driving a dark-colored sedan at approximately 7:15 a.m. on Granite Street near Broadway in Ocean Hill when police say a member of a rival gang in a black sedan attempted to block him in to prevent him from fleeing. While this happens, a grey SUV can be seen whipping around the corner in the background.

The surveillance video then shows the victim speeding around parked cars and onto the sidewalk at a high rate of speed, only to crash into a tree and an iron fence.
