A New York Times delivery truck skipped the curb and nearly crashed into a downtown Manhattan storefront early Wednesday morning.

WPIX reported that the incident took place around 3 a.m. when the newspaper delivery truck hopped the curb on the corner of Prince Street and Broadway in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood and struck scaffolding near a Victoria’s Secret store.

The FDNY said one person was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

FDNY officials and scaffolding company employees responded to the scene to assess the property damage and remove the truck from the scene.

The delivery truck was not the only truck that crashed into a Manhattan building early Wednesday morning.

A private garbage truck crashed into a FedEx store and subway entrance after jumping a curb near Columbus Circle in midtown Manhattan.

Officials say no pedestrians were injured in that incident and the driver of the truck fled the scene. Police say the driver has not been arrested.
