From The New York Shitty Inbox: Holy Shit

Per a tipster, an auto accident came to pass on the BQE this morning which resulted in a vehicle being jettisoned of said roadway and onto McGuinness Boulevard. Fortuitously enough, no one was killed.

UPDATE, 12:58 p.m.: Here’s a brief synopsis of what happened courtesy of the New York Post. The New York Daily News’s (less gore-mongering) take can be seen here. Apparently the vehicle struck was manned by an police officer. Yikes!

UPDATE, 5:05 p.m.: Here are some more photos from the scene courtesy of Robin Hagert. (Thanks!)

UPDATE, 10:20 p.m.: Here’s what the head of our Precinct, Deputy Inspector Hurson, has to say

Heather, the accident today was very seriousness, an off duty Police Officer on his way home from work was driving the car that fell of the highway, we at first thought he was not going to survive. However he is now in stable condition. Both drivers passed a sobriety test. The driver of the other vehicle was arrested for driving with a suspended license.

I agree: this is serious. Hence, why I am very happy to learn this officer is in stable condition— and am very grateful for Mr. Hurson taking the time to contact me and tender an update. Thanks!

Tons of cops at RUMBLERS car show.

Escorting cars out … Skaters at the other end are fine but cars being guided out

The word is a “hells angel” punched a cop…

Shirt says when in doubt knock out… Maybe not a cop…

UPDATE, 6:52 p.m.: All is quiet…

UPDATE, 10:40 p.m.: I have the 411 about what happened from D. I. Hurson himself! He writes:

Miss Heather I noticed you have pictures of the car show. The event was larger then allowed. They were permitted for only two blocks but it stretched from Union to Manhattan ave. Several cars and motorcycles started drag racing.  I ordered the event closed early and dispersed the crowd we made two arrest and issued numerous summonses. We will not allow them to get a permit next year.

UPDATE, August 21, 2011 12:20 p.m.: An anonymous tipster writes:

Hi, I would like it if you could add the following video to your story of the police shutting down the Rumblers car show on Saturday, August 20th, 2011. In the commanding officer’s statement he said that he ordered the show to be shut down due to “Several cars and motorcycles started drag racing.” Yet in this youtube video clip (Which dates from 2008 —Ed. Note), the police are the ones doing a burn out, and driving recklessly through a crowded street at The Rumblers Car Show.

Unfortunately yours truly was not quick enough on the draw to capture Uneeda’s slogan. No worries, I have it memorized:

Don’t glue it, screw it!

Whoever came up with this deserves a prize.
