Probably broke down and the driver tried to alert the security personnel on the bridge but found them asleep.
TRUE - but way rune away? (Maybe JUST Illegal?)
CNNValencia NEW: Witnesses say driver ran from truck. A toll booth operator says he approached truck but backed off after smelling strong odor of gas

Then if not illegal or islamo, they’d be raising high hell with U-Haul, audibly, visibly, on the bridge.
That is one scary photo.
Loaded with illegal immigrants, perhaps?
especially when heading from the Deegan to Queens at night when the lights of Manhattan are aglow.
So he doesn't get stuned?

Local media is reporting that a bomb squad in on the scene.
NEW: NYPD Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne said the bomb squad has been dispatched to the site of the bridge

All U-Hauls have Arizona plates. I think.
Smells like gas? Must be a truck full of illegals.
treating is as haz-mat problem, no terror, move along:)
If it was bomb, that is a lame place and time to put it.
why not let her rip during rush hour middle of the tunnel and get everyone’s attention?
Going over to another thread.
I was thinking of the Kenosha Kickers, actually, on their way to another polka festival.
LOL - they found the truck.
Fox now reporting
I'm sorry, lol, but I can't get that wacky Scottish cartoon janitor from The Simpsons out of my head after reading that.
Great. Just showed up on Fox but I know that location and it isn’t near anything of value.
It it is a bomb it’s going to make a hole in the ground and that’s about it.
What if it broke down? Is that plausible? Nah! Just try to make it look like LEO, FBI and CIA are doing something about WoT. They are, for sure, but this isn’t it.
Does anyone else here think that maybe the CIA or other intelligence agencies are just sitting on their hands now? It is obvious this administration does not have their back, and is more willing to prosecute them for doing their jobs on defending this nation. If I was a CIA agent I would slow my roll too. There just has been a lot of amateur attempts, and foreign plots that it seems that agents are reluctant to act on, or break up.
Rental truck with Arizona plates found on Triborough Bridge
Browne said the vehicle was a U-Haul rental truck with Arizona license plates. It was left on a Manhattan-bound service road leading from the Bronx, he said. Fire officials were responding.
Likewise sorry - I have never watched The Simpsons
Maybe the truck wasn’t meant for the bridge.
How about you give NYPD a break or at least a few props? They’re doing what they have to do, whether this is a break-down, a gas line leak, or a terrorist who didn’t manage to get his bomb all the way to LaGuardia, which is only a mile or two from the bridge.
My money’s on a gas line leak, but it doesn’t explain why the driver ran off.
The character was very eccentric with an extremely thick Scottish brogue. He’d have said “why run away” almost exactly as you unintentionally wrote it.
Somebody mad about the health care bill.
I believe U Haul is an AZ company
“My moneys on a gas line leak, but it doesnt explain why the driver ran off.”
It’s probably a stolen truck that broke down and the perp hi- tailed it out of there.
I thought you were going to another thread Mr. Know-It-All.
Here we go again.
Did the running driver look Amish?
No, he was smart and had some kind of rag covering his head to disguise his Amish beard.
Yes, the web cams for the area are down right now and I’m listening to the traffic.
Thanks for the ping Vel.
that is one beautiful photo!!
There is a sort of drip, drip, drip effect isn’t there? A little here, a bigger one there that is plausibly explained by something else.
This sort of thing is why the plane hijackers reportedly made a point of allowing passengers to call out on their cellphones, they wanted to make sure the world knew, no spinning it away.
I just hope the d*** thing isn’t loaded with fertilizer and diesel or something worse. I’d actually be happy to know it’s just illegals, actually.
Oh, for a few more pleasant memories...
CNN reporting - all clear.
A lot of times the first details to come out of a news story are wrong.
