Livery Hits Cyclist on Lafayette
The intersection of East Houston and Lafayette is dangerous enough, even without the subway superstation mess that has appropriated the area. It’s a high traffic zone full of commuters on foot, bicycle, or in cars. During the morning rush yesterday, a livery driver collided with a cyclist.

The biker was heading north on Lafayette when the driver hit him. One witness on scene told us that, upon impact, the man rolled off his bike and bumped into the traffic barrier. And the bike was totaled, trapped beneath the wheels of the livery cab. Thankfully, the man was okay, and walked away from the accident seemingly unscathed.
