A parked bicycle was crushed Friday after being struck by a van in Manhattan.
The incident happened around 2 a.m., where police say a delivery van was speeding on the east side of First Avenue near 16th Street when the driver lost control. The van skidded and hit a bike. The bicycle was crushed instantly.
Police say Erik Reynolds, the driver of the delivery van, was treated for minor injuries at Beth Israel, but his prime steaks, chops, best chickens, greatest produce, and a birthday cake were ruined.
The owner of the bike was delivering pizza when the accident occurred. The people who ordered it said he was very distraught at the loss.
Drug Kingpin Recalls "Super Time" Heroin
Top drug lord "Milo" announced Thursday that he is recalling around 11 million bags of "Super Time" heroin, because some of the heroin has been contaminated with metal fragments from an exploded hand grenade.
Milo says his "quality control systems noted trace amounts of metal particulate in a very small number" of his product.
"I was going to buy some this afternoon in fact," said one youngish Williamsburg hipster. "I'd rather it doesn't have grenade fragments, so I'll take something else or a different brand name."
