    Two delivery trucks collided on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway last night in Williamsburg, leaving one man dead, cops said.
    A FedEx truck and a UPS vehicle smashed near the Metropolitan Avenue exit at 10:30 p.m.
    One person was ejected and died instantly, witnesses said.

    They don't say which one,this is reported in the NY Post.

    I think it was one of the UPS Freight trucks from that company that they acquired,and by the looks of the tractor it was a Fedex Ground Trailer,that highway always has accidents it is horrible. My condolences to the family of the Fedex Driver.

    Very sad, but it sounds like he didn't have his seat belt on.

    That seems likely but it was said that it was a very hard hit,so maybe it unbuckled because of the impact ? I sure hope so.
