A New York City taxi lost control while driving with a passenger in the cab this week. NYPD Highway Patrol reports that the cab driver was driving near the intersection of Amsterdam Ave and West 72nd St. and Broadway in NYC when the traffic light for his lane turned red. Instead of stopping, the driver sped up and tried to maneuver around the car in front of him. Witnesses say that he was honking his horn repeatedly while trying to pass the stopped car. It was then that the taxi lost control and went careening into a subway entrance. The taxi crashed into a four foot iron fence and the entrance to the 1, 2, and 3 subways. Pedestrians had time to run for safety. The only people that suffered injury were the driver of the taxi, the passenger and a pedestrian on the street. None of the injuries were serious. The three injured parties were taken to the hospital for evaluation.
