A reader sends these pictures of a crash scene at Broadway and 98th Street yesterday evening. The photographer tells us that "a black car traveling northbound swerved onto the sidewalk to avoid a southbound taxi turning left."

According to FDNY, the driver struck an elderly woman, and the impact threw her against a wall. She was taken to St. Luke's Hospital with possible head and shoulder injuries. NYPD had no information on the crash.
