NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Six people were hurt when a livery cab jumped a curb Thursday night in Manhattan.
Police said the silver livery cab got into a collision with a yellow taxi cab around 7:15 at 21st Street and Eighth Avenue in Chelsea.
The livery cab jumped the curb, struck multiple pedestrians and then crashed into a deli, police said.
“We saw one lady on the top of the hood and the younger boy, I think her son I’m not sure it’s her son or not, also was crying there,” a witness who works in a nearby pizza shop told CBS2’s Valerie Castro. “It was very hard actually, very sad.”
City Council Speaker Cory Johnson was attending a nearby event when he heard about the collision.
“It looks like one car was moving east to west across 21st Street here, and the other car was moving from south to north. So it could have been potentially, they’re going to look into it, a T-bone… where the cars hit each other in the intersection and one got pushed away,” he told Castro.
Three people suffered minor injuries and three others were considered serious but non-life-threatening.
Police said the victims include a 56-year-old woman and her 13-year-old son.
The drivers remained on the scene. No charges have been filed.
