To Aaron: Where in the story does it show the truck was at fault? It does not .... Being investigated by PD. Speeding down Merrick Avenue and running red lights? The residents in the area do the same reckless driving as you mentioned... Cars, trucks, neighbors residents etc......

From transformer fire story: A transformer went up in flames at 12:15 p.m. Tuesday. The fire, which took place across the street from the Merrick Avenue and Warren Street intersection, From this vehicle accident story: Police are investigating a three-vehicle crash that took place at the intersection of Merrick Avenue and Warren Street just before 1 p.m. Tuesday... Sounds like someone was not paying attention to the roadway........ Doubt speeding or a red light had anything to do with it. Driver inattention perhaps... Just putting that out there......

Driver inattention watching the LIPA workers instead of the roadway..... Possible? Yes......
