Toddler Dies In Livery Cab Accident In East Harlem
A two-year-old child was killed in a car accident at the corner of 111th Street and Fifth Avenue in East Harlem Friday afternoon. Police say a livery cab carrying a mother and child crashed into a van at about 1 p.m. as it was pulling out of a parking lot. The girl was thrown through the window.
Witnesses described a shocking scene.
“When it spun around, it almost flipped to the side. And when it flipped to the side, it got hit from the front side, and that’s when the girl and the baby came out of the window and the glass scattered,” said a witness. “I told my son, I said, ‘Is that a toy or a baby?’ I saw the girl; she was laid outstretched, she jumped up, and that’s when she said, ‘My baby! My baby!’ And she went to pick up the baby, and the baby was just laying out.”
The girl has not been identified.
So far, no charges have been filed in the case.
