Four people were injured in an Oakland Gardens crash that involved three cars last Thursday evening, and one woman had to be taken out of a vehicle after the jaws of life were used, according to witnesses.

A police source said that one car had made a left turn in front of a second car at 77th Avenue and Bell Boulevard at about 6:20 p.m.

The second car then collided with the rear of a third, parked car, which later had to be driven forward to separate the two vehicles.

The source said none of the four people’s injuries had been considered life-threatening. Two people had been riding in each vehicle.

A tire and car parts ended up on the grass in front of PS 205 - more than 20 feet away from the crash.
