The collision forced authorities to briefly shut down a stretch of the highway and hampered drivers from getting to the Brooklyn-Battery and Holland tunnels.

Two workers aboard the food truck were injured and taken to a local hospital.

The truck’s Twitter account states that the two men injured were “burned” and “bruised up,” but would be “ok.”
