A commercial truck accident in New York City late last month left a section of the BQE closed for hours while FDNY struggled to put out a massive blaze and then clean up the mess left behind. Reports state that around 3:30 on the morning of April 27th a box truck that was traveling east on the Brooklyn Queen Expressway unexpected flipped over on its side near Cadman Plaza West in Brooklyn. The truck immediately caught fire, belching clouds of thick toxic smoke into the air and bringing traffic along the Eastbound section of the BQE to a standstill.
A terrifying commercial truck accident in Queens left three people injured earlier this month. The crash happened just before 1PM on January 28th. The armored truck appears to have run a stop sign. The massive truck then smashed into a BMW at the intersection of 115th Avenue and 200th Street. The truck was traveling at such a high rate of speed that it actually flipped over onto its side before coming to a stop on top of the BMW.
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.
A shocking truck accident in New York City late last month has resulted in not one criminal charge being filed against a driver who fell asleep at the wheel. This isn't uncommon according to many victims of commercial truck accidents in New York City who allege their crashes aren't fully investigated by the NYPD. Often drivers either escape scot-free or the blame is at least partially shifted onto the victim.
