A driver jumped the curb on Central Park West at 65th Street early Thursday morning, destroying a “pedestrian crossing” signal at the intersection.
“A Mercedes Benz with DC plates crashed into the wall of the park causing serious damage to the front of the car,” our tipster wrote. “You can see the pole with the pedestrian crossing button knocked down.”
A police spokesman did not have any information on the crash. The tipster said he saw a police officer speaking with someone who appeared to be the driver (indicating the driver was not incapacitated by the crash).
