NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – One person was killed Friday evening, and three others were injured after a taxi crashed through a bus stop filled with people in the Bronx.
Authorities said the accident occurred around 6:30 p.m. Friday on the Grand Concourse service road between 170th and 171st streets in the Mount Eden section of the borough.
Hours later, the accident investigation stretched for more than a block along the bustling Grand Concourse, CBS2’s Matt Kozar reported. The focal point was the cab that jumped the curb and hit several people.
As 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported, the snow was coming down hard on the Grand Concourse when the green New York City taxi apparently sideswiped a Subaru about 100 feet south of 170th Street.
The taxi driver kept going, crossed 170th Street, drove yet another 100 feet or so, and then jumped the curb and hit people waiting at a bus stop, D’Auria reported.
The taxi kept going several more feet and hit a building, D’Auria reported.
