NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A driver was released with a 10 summonses Sunday morning after an abandoned box truck forced the evacuation of Times Square.
Police had to clear out thousands of people from the area just before 8 p.m. on a busy Saturday night.
They evacuated the entire area, even bringing in barricades to keep people a safe distance away from a beat-up white box truck that was found abandoned on 46th Street near Broadway, right outside of two theaters and the Marriott Marquis hotel.
It wasn’t running, but the keys were in the ignition. Inside the vehicle was a set of suspicious looking wires on the front seat and at least one gas can in the cab.
