NYPD investigating suspicious truck near bridge


NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Police Department is investigating a truck abandoned several yards from a toll booth near the Manhattan side of the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge.

Police say witnesses reported seeing a man flee the vehicle Wednesday night. A smell of gasoline was reported coming from the vehicle, which was described as a U-Haul or Ryder truck.

The bridge has been shut down to traffic. Emergency services officers along with the bomb Squad and the fire department are responding to the scene.

The Robert F. Kennedy Bridge formerly was called the Triborough Bridge. It's a complex of spans connecting Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx.
