A bad accident on the Upper West Side: A woman who had been sitting on the curb crying after a fight with her boyfriend was hit by a car when she walked into the street. A police source told the Daily News, "She had a verbal altercation with her boyfriend, got p----- off at him and she just stepped in front of a car. She was high-stepping it. She was walking fast." Her boyfriend did try to comfort her right after she was hit. The woman, who is in her 20s, was described by witnesses and police as being "visibly intoxicated" and is currently in critical condition at a hospital.
The police did not charge the driver who said, "She just jumped out in front of me and I hit her."
