Pedestrian Struck at Delancey and Clinton [UPDATED]
Here’s some proof that re-tooling the approach to the Williamsburg Bridge is not the solution to the danger element here. Word is coming through the wire that a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle in the intersection of Delancey and Clinton Street, right near the span. The victim is reportedly in critical condition.
