A pedestrian was struck by a Dodge Ram truck as it turned left from West 106th Street onto Amsterdam Avenue at about 3:45 p.m., Wednesday, according to an NYPD spokesperson.
An officer at the scene told tipster Ken C. that the driver stayed at the scene, and that “the pedestrian had the light…the driver did too. Accidents do happen,” she said.
The man who was struck was taken to Mount Sinai Morningside (which the cops continue to call St. Luke’s) hospital in stable condition.
Thanks to Ken C. for the tip and photograph.
Correction: The officer at the scene was a woman and said both parties had the “light,” not the walk signal as originally reported.
