Police said that a car had collided with the cab. There were minor injuries to one passenger and no arrest was made. It appears the cab took out a parking meeting on its way across the pavement and narrowly missed careering through the window of the dental office.

The yellow taxi remained on the sidewalk for a couple of hours as Hell’s Kitchen pedestrians casually maneuvered around the vehicle as they went about their day.

Ironically, the resting place of the taxi just next to Target between W44/45th Street was the site of a recent press conference called by council member Erik Bottcher to highlight the danger of Hell’s Kitchen’s traffic.
