This apparently happened earlier today around 65th & Roosevelt. The driver was not injured, but still a scary incident.

 There is more video today and its horrifying. I feel like everyone in the neighborhood should watch this and be mindful of
the detris that could fall onto the street.

that surveillance video they showed on NY1 was terrifiying. it pierced that windshield like a javelin. the driver was so fortunate that it wasn't a little further over.

and the statement that the stuff had been stored there for "years"? that's a winning lawsuit, and i hope it happens -- even though i am the least litigious person out here.

This puts all my previous concerns about walking there (a loose bolt or a weighty piece of trash falling on me) to shame. Takes me back to my early days in NYC, when falling chunks of building facades struck so many people, I became afraid to go outside.

Apparently another large piece of debris has fallen from the tracks onto somebody's windshield.

The twitter trolls seem to think that Amazon would have fixed the issue by now. They also want a heterosexual councilman
