On Wednesday, August 17, 2011, a New York City Department of Sanitation truck plowed through the wall of a Queens parking garage, leaving the driver of the truck injured, according to information received by Queens injury lawyer Jonathan C Reiter. The truck crash occurred at approximately 9:30 am, at the Sanitation department’s central repair garage on 52nd Road in Woodside.
According to data given to New York City personal injury attorney Jonathan C Reiter, the 15+ ton salt spreader was left hanging from the wall, several stories above ground after careening through the Queens parking garage.
The driver, a 56-year-old man who was a 10-year veteran of the New York City Sanitation Department, was rescued from the nearly airborne truck and transported to Elmhurst Hospital with neck and back pain, added Queens injury lawyer Jonathan C Reiter.
The Queens injury lawyer explains that as of Wednesday afternoon, no statement from the driver had been released.
The Sanitation Commissioner, John Doherty, stated, “We have no statement from him yet and we’re waiting now for a statement from him to understand what exactly happened. We’ll also be reviewing the operation of the vehicle to see if there was any faulty brakes or anything like that. But that’s too soon to tell what the problem may be.”
After the accident, two cranes were brought to the site to bring the truck down to the ground, according to Queens injury lawyer Jonathan C Reiter.
Queens injury lawyer Jonathan C Reiter adds an investigation is underway.
