The MTA strikes again!
For the third time in as many weeks, a dangerous piece of debris fell from the elevated 7 train tracks onto a car below, this time crashing onto a car at Queens Boulevard and Skillman Avenue.
Patrick Tsang on Friday that he was driving underneath the section of elevated track between the Queensboro Plaza and 33rd St/Rawson stations when a piece of rusty metal smashed into his trunk.
“(Debris) fell on my car while underneath the elevated 7 train on Queens Bvld and Skillman Avenue,” he tweeted. “How can anyone feel safe?”
Tsang tagged City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, who has been railing against the MTA for its negligent care of the tracks.
“This is outrageous! More rusty metal debris falling from the 7 train, this time in LIC,” van Bramer tweeted in response to Tsang’s post. “Look at that dent— a person would have died! I sent a letter to @MTA last week demanding an expeditious inspection of the 7 train structure. What is the hold up?!”
The MTA, which had promised to inspect all of its elevated track to remove any hazards after the first incident on Feb. 21, did not immediately return requests for comment.
