An elderly woman was killed in a commercial truck accident in Brooklyn earlier this month. The victim, a 67-year-old resident of Brooklyn's Bensonhurst neighborhood was struck near the intersection of Bay Parkway and 86th Street just after 4 in the morning. The truck was a privately owned sanitation truck.
A New York highway accident claimed the lives of a Brooklyn man earlier this month. The two victims were in a box truck rolling down the highway toward Newark New Jersey when, for some unknown reason, the truck veered into the median. It swerved sideways, crashed into a guardrail, and overturned. The driver and two passengers were trapped inside.
