He likely ran behind a building and changed his shirt. Bet he’s about 40 and a white man.

I didn’t say anything about the LEO. You inferred that.

Either that or I could write more artfully.

And, upon further inspection, a copy of any Sean Hannity book will be on the front seat; the radio will be tuned to whatever local station Rush is on; and (looks both ways before typing) tea ‘residue’ will be found in a styrofoam cup in the cab.

Be afraid. Very afraid.

They woke up Gibbs so he could prepare his ‘Obama has been briefed 6, no 7, times already on this crisis’ and Napolitano can practice her ‘the system worked’ remarks.

A truck with a strong smell of gas... This is as suspicious as the bald guy taking off a sweater on a hot day in Times Square. Mike Bloomberg is on top of this stuff.

New York authorities have determined that a moving truck abandoned on the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, formerly known as Triborough Bridge, did not pose a threat.

Your first post stated that you were going to another thread.

Your 2nd post was the first reply made to your first post.

Nobody had directed any comment at you prior to your 2nd post about a "hole in the ground".......on a bridge.

But why would the driver park it and “flee”?

If there was a gas leak and the driver thought that the van would blow up or catch on fire, then yeah, he might run. Remember the toll booth worker said he smelled gasoline fumes coming from the car.

I'm not saying that is what happen but that's one theory that occurred to me.

I can just see this guy as he finally gets back near his truck with a gallon can of gas and he can see the Coast Guard swarming under the bridge, a National Guard Air Mobil Brigade with 65 helicopters in the air and the entire NYS Police force shouting from surrounding cars towards his truck through Sharpton type PA speakers, with Infantry back up. And all his furniture is in the back of the truck.

did not pose a threat.

I was wondering wth the ‘Triborough’ bridge was, all this time, new bridge?

The driver was busting to beat the cut-off for the Powerball, what with the truck being empty.

"NYPD: A toll booth operator says he approached the truck but then backed off after he smelled a strong odor of gasoline. 4 minutes ago via TweetDeck "

I wonder if the smell is really gas, or diesel fuel? McVey's truck smelled strongly of diesel fuel ( coming from the ANFO) while it was at the motel.

I know how he felt.

I made sure to play the Mega Lottery here in CA for $266 million.

Sadly, I am still here on FR as a non winner.

Oh well....

I didn’t see the “flee” part. I hope this isn’t Part II of Times Square.

This sentence was in the article:

“Police say witnesses reported seeing a man flee the vehicle Wednesday night.”

The truck was empty so not Times Square Part II thank goodness.

my thoughts also, then they elected Bloomberg, and the governor was run out of office for moral reasons, now they have a blind guy as governor...New Yorkers are sure smart...
