Thought you would like this short Halloween Story:
At 7.11 am Halloween 10.31.19 a white Ford SUV failed to stop, accelerator was reportedly stuck, and the automatic stopping assist system failed. I have not put any real effort into guessing their speed, but the damage done to the vehicle, guard rail, Amtrak fence, was impressive. As impressive as the driver only have a small cut on his forehead from the airbags.
The Crappy story is the timeline it took from our 911 call to any NYPD showing up. Calls went in at 7.12am from our house with request for an ambulance and police. We watched and offered assistance to the driver, while talking the gentleman out of walking away. We had to scrub through out security feeds to find an NYPD SUV showed up at 8.45am and left at 8.52am with no photographs, no report generated. No phone call from 911 back to our contact number.
We have a damaged fence along Amtrak, we have car parts all over, we have a completely destroyed guard rail... And 114 is unwilling to answer the land line phone number. We have been in touch via 311 who made this a second 911 call to help prove that the call was not closed or handled correctly. We will be emailing Costa as he wants to play Queens President.
Attached is a video in WMV format for you to enjoy. It happens so fast. Amazed no one was seriously hurt.
Looks like this response and report showed more zero than vision.
