Probably broke down and the driver tried to alert the security personnel on the bridge but found them asleep.

Then if not illegal or islamo, they’d be raising high hell with U-Haul, audibly, visibly, on the bridge.

It has Arizona plates — must be a racial profiling truck

Loaded with illegal immigrants, perhaps?

The Triborough has always been one of my favorite bridges . . .

especially when heading from the Deegan to Queens at night when the lights of Manhattan are aglow.

Maybe the driver didn't have enough $$$ for the toll and was so embarrassed he fled the scene.

A "lot" being defined as "300 or so."

2.75 million NYers voted for McCain/Palin.

Stupid story.

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.

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.

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.

“My money’s on a gas line leak, but it doesn’t explain why the driver ran off.”

It’s probably a stolen truck that broke down and the perp hi- tailed it out of there.

No, he was smart and had some kind of rag covering his head to disguise his Amish beard.

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.

Richmond County, which is the borough of Staten Island, voted for McCain/Palin.

How did Cook County do?
