  • Given the fact that it was Hudson Ave…I’m giving it a guess that it might have been a homeless person. So many of them coming out of that shelter nearby. So sad..

  • Being a garbage truck driver isn’t an easy job but to have this happen when beginning your route is definitely not going to make his day easier. Sorry for the driver – definitely not his fault. Can’t stop that tonage on a dime & give 9cents change. As for victim,prayers go out for him & any family members left behind. Why he was laying in the road may remain a mystery. Lots if things come to my mind but I won’t judge.
