Robber Killed as Getaway Car is Hit by a Truck
The man beating a woman in commission of a robbery at West 52nd and Broadway around three this morning probably thought he had it macked: when a cop car pulled up to intervene, he simply jumped into a waiting getaway car being driven by another woman, presumably of his acquaintance, and they took off. But when they got to Seventh Avenue, they were hit by a garbage truck, and not one of those slow-moving Sanitation Department trucks, but a private truck traveling fast enough to kill the man and seriously injure the driver, who is at Cornell Medical Center; the victim is in stable condition at St. Luke's. The garbage truck drivers were slightly injured. Photo (cc) timetrax23.
