Truck Fire Backs Up Traffic On Van Wyck - wcbstv.com

Read original...

A U.S. mail truck rolled over and caught fire on the Van Wyck Expressway early Tuesday morning.

The vehicle was traveling southbound just before the Jackie Robinson Parkway at around 4:30 a.m. The driver sustained minor injuries.

All northbound lanes has since reopened, but traffic remains heavy in both directions.

As an alternative, take the Grand Central Parkway or the Long Island Expressway to Queens Blvd. back to the Van Wyck.
