Eyes on the Street: Cab Crash in Midtown

34th__Street_7th_and_Broadway_accident.JPG

A tipster sends this shot from 34th Street near Seventh Avenue, taken this morning. The photographer says he heard that the driver and a pedestrian were injured, though we could find no media reports on the crash.

We'd like to chalk this one up to coincidence, but it was really just a matter of time.

Update: According to the NYPD, the cab's accelerator became stuck and the driver crashed into the curb, hitting a planter which in turn knocked a street sign into a pedestrian. Both the driver and the pedestrian refused medical attention.
