And Now an Oil Spill On Third Avenue?

Sanitation truck leak at 11 St. and 3 Ave.Sanna Chu

After the storm, sandy streets have become a fact of life for many New Yorkers. But sand on Third Avenue?

Around 11 a.m., a sanitation truck was picking up garbage when there was a “loud pop,” according to one of the drivers. The truck spilled hydraulic fluid down Third Avenue, from 12th to 11th Street.

Earlier this morning, the fire department had covered the oil slick with sand and the truck was waiting for a mechanic to check on the damage.
