Governor Andrew Cuomo was filmed Monday helping a man get out of a catering van after it had just crashed on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway in Woodside.
The incident took pace at around 1:15 p.m. when Cuomo was traveling along the expressway near Queens Boulevard and spotted a tipped van on its side leaning against a median.
Footage taken by his staff Monday showed the governor helping a man out of the driver’s seat. He intervened, according to reports, out of concern that the van could topple.
Cuomo and his staff arrived on the scene just prior to police.
Cuomo had just left an event for the Association for a Better New York in Manhattan where he announced a plan to expand Pennsylvania Station with the addition of eight new tracks.
NEW: As he was leaving @ABetterNY event, @NYGovCuomo came across an accident on the BQE, and he cut a passenger out of his seatbelt and helped pull him out of the wreck.
