WILLIAMSBURG, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A wayward hawk snarled traffic at an intersection in Brooklyn Wednesday night.
The bird landed at the intersection of Lorimer Street and Lee Avenue in Williamsburg around 6 p.m.
Cars narrowly missed the hawk as about 100 spectators gathered to catch a glimpse until police arrived.
It tried to fly away but apparently could not.
Officers were eventually able to wrangled the animal into a cage.
Eyewitnesses say the bird was having trouble flying and likely needed medical care.
There is no word on the bird's condition.
