Several people were injured this morning after a garbage truck slammed into a building in Downtown Brooklyn.

According to officials, the truck hit a corner store at Bedford and Myrtle avenues at around 3 a.m. They say two workers on the truck, including one standing on the back, were taken to area hospitals.

Fire officials say that the driver of a second vehicle involved in the accident was also taken to the hospital for treatment. No one was inside the store at the time of the crash.
