THIS PICK-UP TRUCK DOESN'T BELONG IN THE BUS SHELTER
He was sitting at the bench in this bus shelter at Bayridge Parkway and 13th Ave. in Brooklyn, just waiting for the bus, when a crash between a mini-van and a Dodge pick-up truck sent the truck careening into the bus stop slamming into the 71-year-old. At first, no one noticed he'd been hit, but Amelia, a witness who I interviewed for 1010 WINS, was apparently the first who did. She started screaming for someone to call 911. EMS arrived quickly and rushed the man to Lutheran Hospital in critical condition. Two others, with non-life-threatening injuries also taken to Lutheran. Moms here say this is the bus stop where they pick-up their kids after school. So you can imagine what horrible thoughts are going through their minds.
