Fight breaks out between mourners, FedEx workers
NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a brawl broke out between FedEx workers and a group of mourners at a funeral in New York City.
Authorities say the fight began after a FedEx delivery truck struck a 46-year-old funeral attendee outside of a mosque in Brooklyn Monday afternoon.
Three people were hospitalized with minor injuries, including the pedestrian who was struck and a man who was slashed in the hand with a box-cutter.
Three others have been taken into custody, including two 25-year-old FedEx workers. The FedEx truck’s windows were smashed in the melee.
FedEx says in a statement the company is cooperating with authorities to “determine the facts.”
