A Forest Hills rooftop parking lot is now in need of repair after a driver crashed into one of the walls facing the street, according to authorities.

The FDNY responded to a call at 8:05 p.m. on Sunday of a crash at the parking lot located on the rooftop at the intersection at 70th Road and Austin Street.

According to published reports, the accident, which sent bricks onto the sidewalk below, occurred after the driver of the car accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brakes.

The driver of the vehicle refused medical assistance at the scene, authorities said.

Police had the sidewalk under the scene of the accident sealed off Monday morning.
