    Two weeks ago I sent y’all pics of a two vehicle accident that took place on April 27th near Park Avenue & Taaffe Place in Brooklyn. Gothamist indicated that gunfire was also associated with the accident and a cyclist appeared to be collateral damage in the accident. However nothing was ever reported by your blog or any other online news source. The pictures weren’t a mirage nor was the crumpled bicycle.
