The driver of a large pickup truck struck a parked pickup and a minivan on downtown New Albany’s Bankhead St. Friday afternoon, damaging all three vehicles.
Eyewitnesses said the pickup was traveling east at a brisk speed when it veered into the parking area on the south side of the street, in front the Hamilton Building. It is believed nobody was in the two parked vehicles. Public safety officers on the scene said they did not believe the woman driving the pickup was injured. The Bankhead Street accident occurred between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m.
Traffic eastbound on Bankhead St. came to a near halt while police and towing company workers were cleaning up the mess. Westbound traffic slowed to a crawl as gawkers observed the excitement during New Albany’s “rush half-hour.”
