Man dead after crashing into garbage truck in Brooklyn

New York Post 3 weeks ago

A man who was busted two months ago for crashing a stolen Cadillac was killed Sunday night — after smashing his car into a garbage truck in Brooklyn, police said.

Zachariah Johnson, 22, was speeding east on Cozine Avenue in East New York at around 9 p.m. when he veered into the westbound lane just after Montauk Avenue and slammed into the parked garbage truck, cops said.

A passerby was able to pull Johnson’s body out of the demolished Toyota Camry just as the car was starting to catch fire, police said.

Johnson was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

In August, he was arrested and charged with grand larceny, reckless endangerment and possession of marijuana for crashing into a bus in a stolen Cadillac STS, cops said.
