It is with extreme sadness that we report that 32 year old Nicole Detweiler was killed last night on McGuinness Blvd and Nassau Ave in Greenpoint after being struck by two vehicles, a BMW and a box truck. The driver of the truck was arrested for driving without a license.

Our hearts are with Nicole’s family and friends at this terrible time. 

Please leave your condolences in the comment section.

This incident is a tragic reminder to be safe and aware, especially when crossing this dangerous street. We all have experienced trucks and cars recklessly speeding along this strip. This roadway must be made safer for pedestrians. And we MUST protect ourselves and not take the risk of crossing against the light or using our cell phones while crossing.
