    Stay well behind any trucks stopped at lights or wherever.

    Never ever go any where near them never mind upsides,

    I let them go, am never in that much of a rush.

    NYPD traffic officer run over and killed by street-cleaning truck while writing parking tickets

    "Kalyanarat Ranasinghe, 71, was writing parking tickets when he was hit on East 44th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues, about 2.30pm.

    "A police report states the freight liner vacuum truck pulled away from the kerbside and struck Ranasinghe, pinning him under the wheel. He died at the scene.

    "Witness Anthony Trinidad said he saw the agent talking on his cellphone when he was hit."

    "'The driver was pulling out and didn't see him. People were yelling for him to stop.'"


    Is there anything more freaking than this? Saturday 2:30 PM on 44th street in the center of midtown Manhattan? The victim was standing, not even walking.
    That is so sad!!!!
