MILL BASIN, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A speeding car crashed through a fence and into the side of a home for seniors in Brooklyn, killing a passenger and injuring four others.

The 22-year-old driver lost control on Strickland Avenue just before midnight.

His 2021 Tesla sedan crashed through a fence, down a driveway, and came to a rest on the side of the Sunrise at Mill Basin assisted living facility.

A rear passenger, an 18-year-old man, was pronounced dead at Brookdale University Hospital.

Four other young men in the vehicle were taken to Kings County Hospital and Brookdale with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the driver was speeding at the time of the crash.

So far, there's no word on charges against the driver.

It was an ordeal that played out with just tweets from officials, but made real when they posted a photo and video of the vessel and its bow with nothing under it.

Brooklyn Bird Watch: June 22

Claim to fame: Film directors use the shriek of Red Tailed Hawks to represent Eagles in movies, as Eagle cries are guttural and uninspiring.

As a bird lover, I was pleased to see the excellent photo earlier this year of the Red Tailed Hawk, by photographer Heather Wolf, author of Birding at the Bridge, featured in the Brooklyn Eagle’s “Brooklyn Bird Watch” series. The Scientific name is Buteo jamaicensis.

The Red Tailed Hawk can be found all over the United States since it is the most common hawk in North America. As a former Brooklyn resident now living in Florida, I remember one morning here, when I was having my coffee, with camera ready, sitting in a lawn chair patiently watching the birdfeeder I had built. Suddenly the birds vanished, and the Blue Jays, Mockingbirds, and Sparrows in the surrounding trees and bushes starting making lots of noise at the same time, I mean lots of noise, sounding alarms full of panic and warning. And then just as suddenly, everything went silent.
