A garbage hauler plowed into a truck stuffed with seafood in Sunset Park on June 17.

The trucks were cruising along First Avenue and 52nd Street toward Bay Ridge at 4 pm, when the fishy four-wheeler floored it hoping to pass the sanitation truck. But the vehicles collided and the waste hauler swerved into the box truck, flipping it on its side, according to an eyewitness.

Both drivers were removed to Lutheran Medical Center with minor injuries, said police.
