A tractor trailer created a web of wires and splinters on East 19th Steet in Midwood this afternoon when it accidentally ripped two utility poles out of the concrete.

The accident occurred sometime between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. at the intersection of East 19th Street and Bay Avenue (just south of Avenue M), and was first reported by New York Buff.

Several cars were damaged, according the report, and Con Edison, FDNY and NYPD personnel responded to the scene. No injuries were reported.

The Con Edison power outage map is not currently showing any outages at that location.

    Sheesh, does anyone in Midwood know how to drive? ;)

    3/4 cars just ran into each other on Bedford and Y. I might have heard someone say a car left the scene. Must have been loud because the whole neighborhood was out. Two of the cars were totaled.
