Curb-Jumping Cab Driver Hospitalizes at Least One Pedestrian on East Side

A cab driver jumped a curb and hit at least one pedestrian on the East Side this morning, in an NYPD precinct that does not enforce speeding.

Lauren Kirsch of Murray Hill took this photo at Park Avenue and E. 32nd Street at around 8 a.m. FDNY got the call for a pedestrian struck at 7:18. A spokesperson said two people were transported to Bellevue Hospital, conditions unknown.

FDNY could not confirm whether the second person was inside or outside the taxi, which ended up against a building on the northeast corner of the intersection. NYPD had no information.

This injury crash occurred in the Midtown South Precinct, where as of September local officers had issued six speeding tickets all year.
