NEW YORK (AP) ― New York City police are investigating a truck abandoned several yards from a toll booth near the Manhattan side of the RFK/Triborough Bridge.
Police say witnesses reported seeing a man flee the vehicle sometime Wednesday night and a smell of gasoline was reported coming from the vehicle, which was described as a U-Haul or Ryder truck.
Traffic on the bridge was closed in both directions and emergency services officers along with the bomb Squad and the FDNY are responding to the scene.
No other information was immediately available.
The Triborough Bridge was recently renamed the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge.
New York City's Triborough Bridge was shut down on Wednesday night after police said a truck, smelling of gas, was found abandoned on the busy thoroughfare.
New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said a worker on the bridge that connects the New York City boroughs of Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx found the vehicle abandoned by its driver and apparently smelling of gas.
