NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A man was arrested after allegedly stealing a deliveryman’s van with his son inside and crashing it into scaffolding in Times Square on Saturday morning.
An employee for a Queens bakery left the van running with his 15-year-old son inside as he made a delivery to a business on W. 44th Street around 5:30 a.m., police told WABC.
A man then hopped in the driver’s seat of the van—but he didn’t make it far, crashing into scaffolding about a block away at W. 45th Street and Seventh Avenue, police said.
The 38-year-old deliveryman, who grabbed onto the van as the thief sped away, suffered a broken leg and hand, according to police.
It's unclear if his son was hurt, but both of them were taken to Bellevue Hospital, police said.
Citizen App video shows firefighters at the scene of the crash before daybreak Saturday.
Charges were pending against a 30-year-old suspect, who was also taken to Bellevue Hospital. He's believed to be homeless.
