NYC Cab Jumps Curb, Hits Pedestrian and Crashes Into Bank


Posted on Feb 28, 2011

The situation was dangerous for those near the intersection of Broadway and 69th Street in the early evening hours of Saturday February 5, 2011. At around 7 p.m. that night a taxicab jumped the curb, hit a pedestrian and crashed into the Capitol One Bank at Broadway and 69th.

Before hitting the bank, the cab took out a traffic light, a one-way sign and a 32-year-old-woman. A 46-year-old woman was a passenger in the back of the cab.

It is currently unclear what caused the cab driver to lose control and jump the curb. The driver told reporters that he was rear ended by another vehicle as he drove north on Broadway, though the cause of the accident remains under investigation by authorities.

When witnesses to this New York City cab crash got to the pedestrian she was face-down on the sidewalk, but she was able to speak. Both the pedestrian and the passenger in the cab were taken to the hospital with injuries. The cab driver was not reported to be injured.

We wish everyone who was hurt in this New York City accident a complete and quick recovery.
