An  elderly woman and her grandson were badly injured in a two car accident in the Jamaica section of Queens Wednesday.

The accident happened around noon when a Burgundy Toyota, traveling northbound on Guy R. Brewer, attempted to speed around another car that slowed down as the light was changing red. The driver of the Toyota then struck a white Infiniti that was turning, causing it to slam into a parked car.

Two passengers in the Infiniti, an elderly woman and young boy, who were not immediately identified, were in the back seat of the car when it was hit. The driver of the Infiniti identified them as her mother and her mother's grandson. Both sustained serious neck and back injuries and were taken to Jamaica Hospital.

"The guy in the Burgundy car was traveling fast," said one witness at the scene. "He was definitely doing over 25."

The driver of the Infiniti told police, "I was turning because the other car had slowed down, then that car just swerved around him and hit me. In 26 years of driving, I have never had an accident."

The driver of the Toyota was not injured and refused medical attention.

There was no evidence of alcohol at the scene, and no arrests were made.
