UPPER EAST SIDE, Manhattan — A person was hospitalized Wednesday morning after a pickup truck crashed into a building on Manhattan’s east side, officials said.
The FDNY said a call came in around 6:20 a.m. reporting a vehicle had slammed into a building near East 62nd Street and York Avenue.
Video from the Citizen App showed a pickup truck that appeared to have crashed into a part of the building attached to an overhang where the main entrance would be.
Security video from a neighboring building obtained by PIX11 News appears to show the seemingly out of control truck speed through an intersection against the light, just barely missing other vehicles.
