A witness captured the aftermath of the Revel moped crash that killed CBS New York reporter Nina Kapur in Brooklyn over the weekend.
The photos, captured by passerby Dennis Flores, show firefighters and EMS workers strapping a woman onto a stretcher on Franklin Street near India Street in Greenpoint.
The scooter is shown resting on its side in the crosswalk.
Kapur, 26, of Newton, Pennsylvania, was a passenger on the 2020 ride, driven by a 26-year-old man who suddenly swerved around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, according to cops.
Police sources say the driver told authorities he believed a car was pulling out of a spot and he was trying to avoid it.
Both Kapur and the driver fell onto the roadway, cops said. Neither were wearing helmets, according to the sources. Both were rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where Kapur was pronounced dead.
The driver, whose relationship to Kapur was not immediately known, suffered minor injuries, according to police sources.
Four days before the fatal crash, Kapur tweeted at Revel for assistance.
“Hi I have been trying to contact revel support for an hour an half now,” she wrote. “Can someone please help me?”
A Revel representative responded, asking her to send a direct message about her issue.
About 12 hours earlier before the accident involving Kapur on Saturday, a 31-year-old man was critically hurt after an apparent mishap with his Revel scooter in Queens, police said.
