The New York Police Department says a truck abandoned several yards from a toll booth near the Manhattan side of the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge is empty and isn't a threat.

The bridge has reopened for traffic after being closed briefly.

Police say witnesses had reported seeing a man flee the vehicle Wednesday night. A smell of gasoline was reported coming from the vehicle, which was described as a U-Haul or Ryder truck.
