A two-car traffic crash on Hicks Street in Brooklyn Heights this morning ended with one of the vehicles plowing into the front door of Middle Eastern restaurant/pizza joint Fatoosh, as first reported by News 12.

Hicks is a one-way street with one traffic lane and one parking lane. Luckily, the restaurant was closed and no pedestrians were struck, according to a spokesperson for the Fire Department. The driver of the car that mounted the sidewalk suffered minor injuries, said the FDNY, and the other motorist did not sustain injuries. No structural damage was done to the building.

The NYPD press office did not have information about the circumstances of the crash, since no one was seriously injured.

This crash occurred in the 84th Precinct. To voice your concerns about neighborhood traffic safety directly to Deputy Inspector Mark DiPaolo, the commanding officer, head to the next precinct community council meeting. The 84th Precinct council meetings happen at 7 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the month, at various locations. Call the precinct at 718-875-6811 for information.
