A 24-year-old driver for the Daily News was killed Sunday morning when his delivery truck collided with a green outer-borough taxi in Brooklyn, police said.
The accident happened around 5:45 a.m. at the intersection of Nostrand and Flushing Avenues in Williamsburg.
Dash cam video taken from a car not involved in the accident shows the Daily News truck approach the intersection at a yellow light before it collides with the taxi.
The collision was so violent that it sent the Daily News truck toppling over.
When police arrived they found the driver, identified as Jonathan Long of Brooklyn, unconscious and suffering from traumatic injuries.
Long was taken to Woodhull Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival, police said.
“The Daily News offers Mr. Long's family its deepest sympathies,” a company spokeswoman wrote in an email.
A 58-year-old passenger in the truck was also taken to Woodhull Hospital. He is listed in stable condition.
Delivery truck drivers often don't wear seat belts and drive with their doors open, as they're continuously hopping in and out of their trucks.
The 26-year-old taxi driver was treated at the scene. His taxi license has been suspended just two weeks after he started driving a taxi, the Taxi and Limousine Commission said.
Police are still investigating what caused the accident.
No arrests have been made.
