The northbound Bruckner Expressway at Middletown Road was the scene of an Monday morning accident involving a compact car and a tractor trailer. According to witnesses, on Monday, August 8 around 7 a.m., the driver of a black Toyota Corolla, travelling on I-95 North was merging from the middle lane to the left lane. The driver then quickly returned to the center lane, but failed to see a tractor trailer had already occupied the lane and was caught underneath its trailer, the witness said.

The automobile driver reportedly sustained minor injuries from the accident. A tow truck removed the severely crushed vehicle from under the trailor. The FDNY and NYPD shut down the roadway for a time to conduct their investigation which resulted in heavy traffic delays for the morning commute.
