NYC cab slams Hoboken apartment

8/28/2008:

Shortly after midnight, a NYC cabbie jumped the curb and crashed into an apartment on the corner of 3rd Park. Apparently no one in the area was hurt, including the driver, who walked away unscathed.

Hoboken411 reader Nina Zakharenko sent the pictures in.

At least now he can get a job at Rapido Taxi! He was trolling for fares in Hoboken and not paying any attention when he swerved to avoid a car that blew the stop sign. 😯

I can’t imagine someone driving all that fast on Park. He’d have had to stop/pause before crossing Third, and since Fourth is a dead-end into Church Square Park …

… then again, it WAS an NYC cab driver. 🙄

If I were driving through Hoboken at a reasonable speed, and a pedestrian jumped out in front of my car, I would either (a) slam on the brakes or (b) swerve out of the way. If I did swerve, I certainly would not be able to jump the curb at the speed I typically drive, nor would I hit anything hard enough to total my car.
