Last month, there were a string of accidents that left over twenty people injured and one person dead after vehicles jumped the curb and hit pedestrians, seemingly making sidewalk the most dangerous place for pedestrians. Yesterday, an accident at Broadway and West 63rd Street, a taxi cab and car crashed into each other, sending one vehicle spinning into a Starbucks and hitting a pedestrian.
As far as we could gather from some witnesses, the cab crashed into the Mercedes, which then swerved onto the sidewalk and into the Starbucks. The Mercedes apparently also hit a person on the sidewalk, bringing that person into the store . The Mercedes' occupants were all okay, while the cab's passengers were removed to an ambulance. The pedestrian was bloodied by the broken glass and also taken to a hospital, while firefighters were working into the night to remove the cab driver from the car.
