“The tractor trailer T-boned the SUV at the intersection of Broadway and West 66th Street around 6:10 a.m., the NYPD said.
The SUV then hit a man and crashed into the 66th Street-Lincoln Center subway station entrance.”
DNAinfo interviewed the tractor-trailer driver, who said he didn’t do anything wrong.
The 18-wheeler was heading south on Broadway while the SUV was coming across West 66th Street, the tractor-trailer’s driver told DNAinfo New York.
“I had a green light. The guy ran through a red,” said the driver, 69, who refused to give his name. “I made the last light and was doing 25 mph. He came right under me. I never had a chance.
“It was bang, bang,” he added. “He was right behind the elevator [at the subway station], where he stopped. I did everything right.”
The Daily News also posted some dramatic pictures of the scene.
