Eyes on the Street: Horrific Ped Fatality in Bklyn Hts This AM

11:17 AM EST on December 13, 2006

Henry_Street.jpgFrom a Streetsblog tipster:

At 6:00 am a garbage truck (CSI company?) turned from Montague Street on to Henry Street and hit and killed a mid 50's pedestrian. Her shoes and back pack were splayed on the street and I believe that a tire crushed her...

I live on Montague Terrace around the corner from the accident and I always hear these commercial trucks whizzing around at night but, even worse, when they compact the garbage after the stops, the liquid garbage goo from the restaurants and food stores leaks out the back of their trucks and leaves oily slicks on the ground for bicyclists and pedestrians and cars to skid and crash on.
