Garbage truck crushes cars, injures two after overturning in Brooklyn

A sanitation truck overturned in Brooklyn on Wednesday morning, injuring two people and crushing several cars in its path, according to authorities and photographs from the scene.

The truck crashed around 3:45 a.m. in the area of Flushing and Nostrand avenues in Williamsburg, an FDNY spokesman said.

Photographs from the scene show the green truck landed on its driver’s side, crushing or damaging at least four cars in its wake.

Two people were taken to Woodhull Hospital, though their conditions were not immediately known, the spokesman said.

It was not clear if the truck belonged to the city or a private company.
