The scene where a truck crashed into a Brooklyn bus stop Tuesday, hitting a 71-year-old man.
A 71-year-old man waiting at a bus stop was seriously hurt after being hit by a pickup truck in Brooklyn Tuesday afternoon, authorities say.
The man was waiting for the bus at 13th Avenue and Bay Ridge Parkway in Dyker Heights when the truck and a minivan collided. The crash sent the truck barreling into the stop, hitting the man.
"I felt the building shake and then I ran outside and saw the man laying there on the floor, sitting there with the car through the bus stop," witness Manny Giurato said.
Emergency crews rushed the man to the hospital and both drivers stayed on scene. Witnesses said the truck was speeding and that it was a common occurrence at the busy intersection.
