CRAZY night @ 25th and 8th Ave tonight!
(Notice the door in the front seat!)
My Roof Spotter Jess
came down with a hot tip,
and I hit the street!
Not a pretty scene....
Dude went right into the building.
They are using the "Jaws of Life"
to take the door off here to get the man out.
Unfortunately on his way to hit the building,
he hit a pedestrian and 2 bicyclists....
That is a pair of bikes under the van....
The man in the van hit this cab on his way into the
building and spun him around.
There were dozens of emergency vehicles and
40 or 50 cops and firemen,
8th Ave was completely blocked off
for more than an hour, as was 25th street.
Here is the culprit...
ran a light, hit the van,
who hit cab, who hit a pedestrian.
The man in the van kept going hitting the 2 bicyclists
and then the building.
NO ONE died
thanks be to Buddha.
Only broken bones (lots)
and some minor head injuries.
2 cops, one cabbie, one pedestrian,
and the old man in the van....
Coulda been a whole lot worse....
Blessings to the injured,
and I hope for a speedy recovery
for all involved.
