Eyes on the Street: Second Crash in Three Days at Columbus Ave. Corner
On Tuesday evening, a van driver headed east on 72nd Street jumped the curb at Columbus Avenue and crashed into a light pole. Last night, a driver jumped another car at the same intersection, ending up with a front wheel perched on its mangled hood. Reader Liz Patek sent in the shot above.
Something about the street design at this intersection appears to be creating unsafe conditions for everyone using the street, from drivers to pedestrians to the cyclists whose protected lane ended five blocks uptown.
