Thanks to TLD contributor Erin Egan Rodriguez, who alerted us to this scene on Delancey Street this morning.  A sanitation truck smashed into about a half dozen cars that were parked along Delancey, causing a whole lot of damage.  There was no sign of the driver; the truck, owned by Imperial Sanitation Corp., out of Astoria, is about to be towed away.

The owners of some of the cars are gathered on the street, just east of Bialystoker Place/Willet Street, shaking their heads in disbelief.  We have calls into the Police Department and the sanitation company for more information. In the meantime have a look at these photos.
