There’s been a lot of incidents over the past few weeks in the area, some more serious than others. Here’s a quick look at them.
Last week, after an argument a dog, a man punched another man on the street and ran, sending the victim to hospital in a critical condition. Just two days later, however, the attacker was found hiding at his mother’s home in New Jersey, and was arrested. And this week he reportedly broke down in his first court appearance, so that’s something.
On Monday a bus struck two tourists from Spain in their 60s at the W 47th St & 10th Ave intersection. Both were taken to hospital and were reportedly in serious but stable condition. ABC7 has some footage from just after the incident.
And just yesterday another bus was involved in an accident, also on 10th Ave. Fortunately this one only crashed into scaffolding – not pedestrians – and there were no serious injuries.
