NYPD: Fleeing driver slams stolen van into tractor-trailer
A stolen van slammed into a tractor-trailer on East 233rd Street in Woodlawn Wednesday with police in hot pursuit, officials say.
A gas station's surveillance video shows the van speeding as marked patrol cars pursue the vehicle with their lights on.
Police say the van was stolen from in front of 95 E. 233rd St. The driver was taken to Jacobi Medical Center. He is expected to be OK.
The van's owner arrived shortly after the crash to try and recover some of his belongings from inside.
