A cab driver was hospitalized after being involved in a crash in Kips Bay on the afternoon of October 5. First responders raced to 30th Street and Second Avenue just before 4:30pm, after a taxi collided with another vehicle, overturning the cab and trapping the driver inside.

Members of the 17th Precinct waited with the driver until FDNY arrived and extracted the man by removing the car’s windshield. According to police sources, cops received conflicting reports from both drivers regarding the accident. While one car owner told police that they stopped for a school bus when the taxi rear ended their vehicle; the taxi driver disagreed with the account, telling officers that a car stopped short causing him to smash into it when he was unable to break in time.

The taxi driver complained of neck pain to EMS and was transported to Bellevue Hospital for evaluation and treatment.
