Eyes on the Street: How Did This Happen?

A reader sends this shot, taken at the corner of Seventh Avenue and 24th Street this afternoon. We're waiting to hear back from NYPD about whether anyone was hurt. Hopefully this will be one of the lucky cases where an out-of-control cab didn't harm anyone. And really, in the middle of Manhattan, just a short walk from Penn Station, it all boils down to pure chance. I wonder how fast a car has to travel to flip over like this. Does Ray Kelly know?
