NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Residents of Boerum Hill and Carroll Gardens are irate after almost being struck by an ice cream truck.

According to neighbors, the same ice cream truck driver has continuously knocked over NYPD wooden barricades used to block the street off for pedestrians.

Some residents have caught the driver on video.

In one video,  the truck is seen entering westbound into Pacific Street in Boerum Hill on three separate occasions, each time rolling over the police barricades at Bond Street that are part of the city’s "open streets" program.

"I first caught him about six to eight weeks ago. I chased him down on my skateboard to see what his response was," 38-year-old dad Dan told the New York Post. "When I asked him what he was doing, he just laughed."

Morgan Johnson told NBC New York she was nearly run over by one of the ice cream trucks in her neighborhood. "He just came whipping around the corner over the sidewalk, and almost ran us over. So we chased him down the block and were yelling at him."

Police confirm they've received numerous complaints about the truck and after the video was brought to their attention, said an investigation is ongoing.
