Two Bed Stuy Buildings Evacuated After Garbage Truck Plows Into Deli


    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.
