Sometimes you go out, have a late night bender, get a little too far gone, but still have to drive your car home. No way are you getting up to move your car for 7:30 street cleaning. You’re okay, just be careful, maybe keep the windows open, drive slowly on the Gowanus…and…watch out for falling…vans?
Yes that’s right a van. Fox News (1) reports that “a van somehow ended up hanging from the 84h Street footbridge over the Gowanus Expressway in Dyker Heights on Tuesday.”
The report goes, “according to police, emergency crews were called to the scene at around 4am.” It remains a mystery “how the van nearly fell off the roadway at Dyker Place,” but needless to say that late night revelers on Monday night who were driving home late were probably blitzed out of their mind.
“Police believe the driver may have struck a tree.” Fortunately there have been no hospitalizations associated with this bizarre incident.
What comes of this next is anyone’s guess.
