Man Critical In Cab Back-Up Crash

By Liz Goff
A Queens man suffered serious injuries when a taxi backed into him on a Jackson Heights street on August 19, police said.

Cops said the victim was crossing 74th Street behind a yellow cab that was stopped in a crosswalk on 34th Street at about 1:10 a.m. on August 19, when the cabbie put the vehicle into reverse and slammed into the man.

The man was pushed to the pavement and was unconscious and unresponsive when he was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where he was listed in critical condition, authorities said.

It is unclear if the cabbie was issued any violations or was charged in the accident.
