Every day, New York sidewalks are traversed by billions of human feet, animal paws, bike wheels, and other New York sidewalk staples. Strangely enough car tire treads aren’t something that is usually found on the sidewalk, but they were on October 24th.
Early Wednesday morning, bystanders witnessed a car speeding through a stop light and colliding with a City College vehicle in Hamilton Heights. The two vehicles that crashed ended up on the sidewalk where one of the vehicles drove through some scaffolding. Two people were injured and transported to Harlem Hospital.
Vehicle accidents in New York often involve cars, trucks, pedestrians, private and public property, and sometimes even sidewalks. Pedestrians walking the streets of New York need to be highly alert of speeding cars, taxis, buses, and trucks, especially when crossing busy street corners and during rush hour traffic.
