Police say a U-Haul truck that was traced to Bronx and caused a bomb scare after it was ditched near a toll booth at New York City’s Robert F. Kennedy Bridge is not terrorism related.

Police say a bridge authority officer believed he smelled gasoline coming from the truck and saw a man flee the vehicle late Wednesday night.

The NYPD bomb squad and other emergency officials rushed to the scene, but nothing dangerous was found inside the vehicle.

The driver was waved over by Port Authority officials who do routine searches of trucks on city bridges, and he may have fled because the truck was stolen.
