Here is today's disturbing reminder to always be very, very careful when riding your bike, driving your car, or walking your legs, particularly in Midtown. A cyclist was hit by the driver of a cab on 57th Street and 9th Avenue around 4 p.m. yesterday, sending him to the hospital.
According to FDNY, the victim was taken to New York Hospital in stable condition. Officials were unable to provide additional details on the events that led to the crash, but the cab's smashed windshield suggests the cyclist was hit with enough force to have been flung onto the hood of the vehicle. The driver remained on the scene.
