A driver was killed in an accident on the Brooklyn Bridge earlier this morning. According to WCBS 2, "New York City police say the man was driving toward Manhattan when his car collided with a city Department of Transportation dump truck... Police say the truck was equipped with an arrow on top of its cab alerting drivers to work crews on the bridge. It wasn't immediately clear whether the truck was moving or parked during the crash." The driver was pronounced dead at the hospital. Currently, the inbound lanes and the ramp from the eastbound Brooklyn Queens Expressway to the bridge are closed.
