Two vehicles were involved in a crash at 79th street and Amsterdam Avenue Tuesday afternoon around 3 p.m., sending one person to St. Luke’s Hospital with minor injuries, according to FDNY.
NYPD headquarters did not have details about the crash.
“From what I overheard at the scene the car on the sidewalk was hit by an unmarked police car either in pursuit of someone else or responding lights and sirens to another incident,” wrote Guy Mascioli. “The unmarked police car hit the silver car sending it out of control on to the sidewalk.”
Next month, the community board will discuss possible changes to Amsterdam Avenue intended to make the avenue safer.
Thanks to Guy Mascioli for the photos.
