The driver from Sanitors Security Company stands next to his vehicle, which was totaled in the crash. The unidentified driver told police that he was driving eastbound on Rockaway Beach Boulevard when he collided with the Parks Department van, but he was unsure as to what happened in the seconds before the crash. Police say that they are investigating the crash, but that it appears that the Parks Department van, which was heading northbound to the Cross Bay Bridge had the light at the time of the crash. The fact that both autos spun out and were facing in directions other than the directions they were traveling makes the investigation more difficult.
