EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn — A driver is dead after her car collided with a postal truck when she possibly ran a stop sign in Brooklyn early Tuesday, according to police.
The NYPD said the deadly crash occurred just before 2 a.m. at the intersection of Atkins and Cozine avenues in the East New York section of the borough.
The 20-year-old woman was traveling in her Honda sedan southbound on Atkins Avenue when she drove through the intersection and collided with a U.S. Postal Service truck traveling eastbound on Cozine Avenue, authorities said.
Police said the preliminary investigation indicates she likely drove past a stop sign at the intersection without stopping.
Responding officers found the woman unconscious and unresponsive after receiving a 911 call for the crash.
