Surveillance footage shows the two cars colliding with each other and spinning out of control, with one barreling onto the sidewalk and another down the street.

Car parts were littered across the pavement and sidewalk as first responders rushed to get the victims loaded into ambulances, additional footage from the aftermath shows.

Two people were rushed to Maimonides Hospital but could not be saved, cops said.
