Two people injured in NYC truck accident

accident sceneA box truck slammed into a store front injuring two people in New York City last week.  The truck accident occurred on Utica Ave near Church Ave on East Flatbush in Brooklyn, NYC. A video surveillance captured the frightening accident.  A  box truck driver who wanted to park waited for a previous car to leave a spot in front of a 99 cents store. After the car left, the truck driver started to maneuver to get in the parking spot.  All of sudden he just lost control of the vehicle,  knocked down a parking sign and crashed into the 99 Cents store.  A mother and her child walking on the sidewalk were almost killed. The child was ok but the mother was injured and transported to the hospital. The driver was found unresponsive in the cabin of the truck.  He may have suffered a seizure. He was transported to the hospital in critical condition. Read more in the NY Daily News
