Cab Driver Seriously Injures Cyclist on Upper West Side

A cyclist was struck and injured by a cab driver at 81st and Broadway this afternoon.

A spokesperson said FDNY got the call at 2:20 p.m., and that responders transported a 35-year-old male in serious condition to St. Luke's Roosevelt. A tipster who alerted us to the crash and took the photo said the victim was a delivery cyclist. She described the scene as "Bad." Judging from the photo, the cab driver barely missed mounting the curb.

NYPD confirmed the collision between a cab driver and cyclist and said there may have been a third vehicle involved, but had nothing more when we called, a little over an hour after the crash.

If anyone has further info, let us know.

This crash occurred in the 20th Precinct. To voice your concerns about neighborhood traffic safety directly to Deputy Inspector Brian A. McGinn, the commanding officer, go to the next community council meeting. The 20th Precinct council “usually” meets on the fourth Monday of each month, except in July and August, at precinct, 120 W. 82nd Street, at 7:00 p.m. Call 212-580-6428 for more information.
