A New York accident resulted in injuries to at least two people when a taxi ran onto a sidewalk and crashed into a storefront on Oct. 6. The accident occurred at about 11:50 a.m. near an eyeglass store on the Upper East Side.
The cab was traveling on East 59th St. when it reportedly jumped the curb and collided with a building near the intersection of Madison Ave. The owner of the store said that he and the people working inside were startled by a sudden loud bang as the cab struck the store's front wall near the entrance. The man said he saw a pedestrian lying on the floor immediately after the impact.
