Two Bed Stuy Buildings Evacuated After Garbage Truck Plows Into Deli

994-bedford-avenue-062014

Residents of 992 and 994 Bedford Avenue were evacuated after a garbage truck plowed into the corner deli at 994 early this morning, according to a Brownstoner reader who emailed us about the accident. The truck swerved to avoid a car that ran a red light and injured eight people, said The New York Daily News.

The residents of 992 Bedford, a three-family building, were allowed back in after the DOB checked it out, but now 994 has a full vacate order on the property, said our tipster. The latter has two units over a store.

    Cate, Apparently, the vacate will remain in place until the owner can get an engineer to determine extent of damage and shore up the building as needed. In the meantime,the owner’s contractor is clearing up the rubble and erecting a security fence around the structure. SWR
