Just days after a failed car bomb attack on Times Square, a suspicious truck abandoned on the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge caused police to shut the span down for about three hours Wednesday night, cops said.
A bomb squad determined the truck was empty and not a threat.
The U-Haul truck with Arizona plates was spotted by alert bridge authorities abandoned about 100 yards from a toll plaza on the Bronx side heading to Manhattan at 9:40 p.m.
Witnesses saw a man with a white bag fleeing on foot towards Queens, cops said.[…]
“There is no explosive device of any kind” said Browne. “Police are now trying to establish the identity of the driver.”
Traffic resumed shortly after midnight.
