Garbage truck smashes into deli

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Seven people were hurt when a garbage truck slammed into a deli in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn early on Friday morning.

It happened at about 2:15 a.m. on Bedford and DeKalb Ave.  Police say the accident occurred when a Metropolitan Recycling truck swerved to avoid a car that ran a red light.

The FDNY says three of the injures are serious but all of the victims are expected to survive.

The building housing the Gourmet Deli was evacuated and inspectors were checking the structural integrity of the building after the incident.

The garbage truck was from a private hauling company.  There was no word on the name of the driver or if they were charged in connection with the crash.
