A woman stole a post office truck in Brooklyn Friday evening, and then took it on a joyride during which time she struck more than a dozen other vehicles, police said.
The U.S. Postal Service employee was away from the vehicle making deliveries when the woman hopped inside the truck around 6:30 p.m., according to police.
She took off, driving around and striking around 14 parked vehicles, although it could be more as the exact number is not yet known, police said. The last vehicle she struck was parked at Kingston Avenue and Fulton Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, when police were finally able to catch up as she was blocked in by the crash that she caused.
No injuries were reported.
The woman was taken into custody immediately after the incident, but no charges had yet been filed. It was not clear how much damage the postal truck, which is about the size of a box truck, took in the excursion.
The investigation is ongoing.
