Accident: Truck Vs. Minivan On Ave Y And East 14th St

Broken glass littered the street on Avenue Y and East 14th Street, after a Blue Diamond oil truck struck a Kings Plaza car service van at approximately 1:30 p.m. today.

The accident happened on the west-bound side of the road as the minivan entered the intersection. No one at the scene could tell Sheepshead Bites what happened, but it appeared the minivan may have stopped short, causing the truck to strike it, shattering the rear window and tearing off a chunk of the bumper.

NYPD is currently on scene, and an ambulance left at approximately 1:45 p.m. without its sirens on. It’s believe the minivan driver was in the ambulance after suffering minor injuries. He was not on the scene when we arrived.

Traffic from the incident backed up Avenue Y in both directions.
