A high-end car was smashed up by a Fresh Direct delivery truck and the crash was caught on camera. But despite the video evidence, the company hadn't paid up for damages until 7 On Your Side stepped in to help.
"The truck backed into it, pushed the whole car into the curb," said Bob Aiello. His Alfa Romeo 4C turbo took a direct hit from a Fresh Direct truck and the entire incident was caught on security camera video outside a Queens restaurant last June.
The driver never got out and just took off, leaving behind over $17,000 in damage.
Bob and his girlfriend Lori Greendale manage a fleet of fun and exotic cars, renting the vehicles out on the Getaround car-sharing app.
"Since I managed this car it was difficult because it wasn't renting and we were losing all that money." said Lori.
