NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- For the second time in two weeks, debris from the 7 train station in Woodside, Queens, has come crashing down, narrowly missing a driver.
"What the hell is going on here?!" tweeted councilman Jimmy Van Bramer Wednesday afternoon. "For the second time in two weeks a piece of debris has come crashing down on a vehicle Below tracks on Roosevelt Ave., this time at 62nd street. The car was occupied and moving. No one injured but someone is going to get killed here @MTA!"
Holding a piece of the debris -- metal from a stairway at the station -- Van Bramer subsequently tweeted, "I’m at the scene where a rusted piece of debris crashed from the 7 train above onto a car driving down Roosevelt Ave. in #Woodside. We must fix our crumbling subway infrastructure before a tragedy occurs!"
Following Van Bramer's tweets, the MTA said in a statement, "MTA personnel are at the scene investigating what the material is and where it came from."
Last Thursday, a wooden beam from a 7 train crashed through the windshield of a moving car, barely missing the vehicle's occupant.
"A track (he later clarified it was other debris) from the 7 train just crashed down upon a driving car around 65th Street in Woodside, piercing through the windshield," tweeted Van Bramer. "These photos are horrifying!
He continued, "Thankfully the driver was not injured, but someone could have been killed! There must be an immediate investigation into how something this dangerous could happen. @MTA must answer for our crumbling subway infrastructure before a tragedy occurs ... It appears that this is not a "track," but a wooden beam or other debris from the 7 train. Regardless, someone could have died."
