Getting in an accident stinks. When the reckless wacko who sideswipes you is a cabbie – ostensibly a “professional” driver – it just makes things worse.
A few minutes ago Mrs. B was side-swiped on Pierrepont Street in a hit-and-run by a yellow cab with medallion number 3Y65; there were three small children in the back of the car. No one was hurt but we’re out a side view mirror. We reported it to TLC but don’t have a lot of faith they’ll do anything about it. It will be interesting to watch the slow wheels of bureaucracy turn though.
We’re glad no one was hurt. The cabbie fled the scene. Brownstoner says the hack knew he’d done some damage because, “Mrs. B chased him for a couple of blocks honking her horn so we’re pretty sure he was aware!”
