A minivan crashed into scaffolding on the corner of 89th Street and Amsterdam on Tuesday afternoon, causing the structure to topple onto the vehicle and a traffic light. No one was injured in the crash, which was called in at 3:34 p.m., according to FDNY.
The van driver didn’t explain what may have caused the crash. “It was an accident,” she told us.
NYPD closed off 89th Street between Amsterdam and Broadway, and traffic was blocked up for several blocks.
