BREAKING: Disturbed Man Holds Belt Parkway Hostage

UPDATE: It appears it was not an emotionally disturbed person, but an elderly driver who was in a minor accident, losing his side mirror. The man pulled over and was trying to recover the mirror. Police took him off the road.

Original post:

We just received word that an emotionally disturbed man is wandering in and out of traffic on the Belt Parkway.

The man is on the westbound side of the Belt Parkway on the Paerdegat Basin bridge. We’re told a construction worker involved in reconstructing the bridge called police.

This is a breaking story and we will update it as new information becomes available.
