This dispatch and photo from BHB tipster “Dwight':
In an effort to bypass an illegally parked van, an oversized transportation truck hit a large Ginkgo tree in front of 165 Hicks Street. No one was injured. The fire department was called to remove the tree.
This accident has left many in the neighborhood wondering if there should be signs posted to regulate the height, speed and width of vehicles permit to travel through the narrow streets of Brooklyn Heights.
