A pedestrian and a cab passenger were injured this morning after a taxi driver jumped the curb and slammed into a light pole in front of The Met.

The incident happened just before 10 a.m. at East 84th Street and Fifth Avenue. According to the News, the 60-year-old cabbie told cops he swerved onto the curb to avoid another taxi that had just cut him off. The car struck a light pole, which fell and struck a 41-year-old woman who was holding her baby on the sidewalk.

"She shielded her kid, and the pole glanced her, but she is going to be fine," a cop on the scene told the Post. A 47-year-old passenger in the cab suffered a head injury in the crash. Both victims, and the baby, were taken to New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Hospital.

The Post identified the driver as Mohammad Miah, who told them, "I’m upset my car was in an accident. It’s very damaged. This is a company car. This is not my fault. I had a passenger. She had a cut on her head. She went to the hospital."

Cops add that no arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
