Report: Double-parked motorist arrested for striking 2 firefighters on 6th Street

The Post has a report on a double-parked motorist who hit two firefighters as she drove up on the curb to avoid their ladder truck.

Per the Post:

Victoria Sotomayor, 28, was double-parked near Avenue B and East 6th Street at about 2:30 p.m. [yesterday] when firefighters from a nearby firehouse parked at Avenue C and East 6th while responding to a call, sources said.

Sotomayor allegedly ran up to the firefighters and screamed at them, claiming they almost hit her car when they pulled into their parking spot, the sources said.

She then allegedly drove onto the curb to get around their ladder truck, but hit two firefighters in the process, injuring a 27-year-old smoke-eater’s hands, the sources said.

According to the Post, she drove off, and was caught be members of the NYPD and FDNY on Sixth Street at the FDR, where she was arrested. She was reportedly released with a desk appearance ticket for leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.
