Haven’t had a photo of an UWS taxi crash in a while, but that drought has come to an end.
A cab plowed into scaffolding at the corner of Amsterdam & 106th around 2:00 pm Tuesday afternoon.
In addition to the cab, a delivery van/truck was also somehow involved, although the details remain sketchy as driver seems to be blaming the other for the mishap:
Henry Serreira, a 19-year-old truck driver, was driving on Amsterdam Avenue at 105th Street when he said a cab pulled in front of him.
“I was at the red light and I waited for the green light. Next thing I know the cab hit me on the right,” he said. “Then he kept going straight and then he ran into the blue scaffolding.”
But yellow cabbie Pema Pema, 39, said the van was speeding and hit him from behind, propelling him into the scaffolding.
Apparently only one person suffered minor injuries, which is pretty miraculous given the time of day and the fact that so much scaffolding came crashing to the ground.
