    I live at 140 Cadman Plaza West, and the crash this morning awoke me … and I unfortunately saw the victim who was injured. I have not seen confirmation on this, but all of my doormen said that this poor woman passed away this afternoon. Horrible tragedy … I am hoping they are misinformed somehow (I didn’t want to post any rumors on this site, just looking for confirmation).

    Either way, my thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.

    The problem is the livery drivers. Most of the car services only have one or two drivers on the overnight shift. These guys are picking up passengers all night, racing from one call to the other. The driver involved in this accident probably fell asleep and that is why he lost control.
