Coors truck crashes into Popeyes after collision at traffic light

A Coors Light semi-truck crashed into a Popeyes restaurant in Brooklyn, New York City, after it collided with a white Subaru at an intersection on Wednesday evening, February 21st.

The details: At around 7:20 p.m., the truck moved through a red light at the intersection of Metropolitan and Vandervoort Avenues and hit the Subaru, which had a green light. Both vehicles ended up crashing into the restaurant, causing shattered windows and doors.

Injuries: The truck driver suffered possible head injuries and was hospitalized. The Subaru driver experienced a possible hand injury but refused medical treatment. There were no other injuries reported.

The collision caused a natural gas cylinder from the truck to break off, prompting firefighters to work on securing any leaks. Concerns about an explosion were high due to a nearby gas station. The restaurant was later deemed safe to enter, but it will require repairs before reopening.

An eyewitness inside the restaurant during the crash expressed shock, describing the event as "traumatizing."

Aftermath: No arrests have been made, and an investigation is ongoing reported Fox News.

The Brooklyn community is now awaiting the outcome of this investigation, with no word yet on any citations related to the crash.
