Three Young Adults Killed in High-Speed Collision


BROOKLYN, NY – A high-speed car crash at Floyd Bennett Field killed three young adults and injured four others, one of whom is in critical condition.

According to The New York Times, the crash occurred at 8:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 11. Two 16-year-old boys were driving their vehicles at Floyd Bennet Field near Aviation Road and Flatbush Avenue. One of the vehicles, a 2020 Toyota Camry, was driving west when it struck the passenger side of a southbound 2014 Kia Forte. NYPD officers believe that the vehicles were speeding and street-racing at the time of the collision.

Emil Badalov, the 16-year-old Kia driver, and his Daniel Sidgiyayeva, 11, and Margarita Sidgiyayeva, 18, all sustained life-threatening injuries. EMS transported the accident victims to NYU Langone Medical Center, but they all three were pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital

A fourth passenger in the Kia, a 17-year-old boy, sustained severe injuries from the accident. Medics rushed the teenager to NYU Langone Medical Center, where he is currently in critical condition.

The Toyota’s 16-year-old male driver and two female passengers, ages 16 and 18, also sustained injuries during the accident. The Toyota’s occupants were all transported to Kings County Hospital. The hospital reported Sunday that all three of the teenagers were in stable condition.

None of the teenagers involved in the accident have been charged at this time. However, the collision is still under investigation.
