Flatbush backs up on Flatbush for 7 minutes while truck backs into loading dock

Dean Street between Sixth and Flatbush
September 7, 2012 - 1:30pm

Traffic backed up on Flatbush for more than 7 minutes on Friday afternoon at the intersection on Dean Street. The cause?  A tractor trailer that repeatedly backed in and out in an attempt to get into the Barclays loading dock.  In the attached video, the traffic starts moving again at 5:20, but the back up was already in progress for at more than two minutes before the video was recorded.   
No flaggers were at the intersection of Flatbush and Dean to direction traffic.
