On Saturday evening, witnesses said a car (pictured) traveling west on E. Fordham Road side-swiped another vehicle. When attempting to flee that crash scene, the driver slammed into the back of a taxi near Creston Avenue. Despite the heavy damage the vehicle sustained, witnesses say the driver continued toward Jerome Avenue, where an unidentified pedestrian was also hit. The crash remains under investigation. Less than three months ago, a woman was killed by a taxi that had crashed into the front of a department store on Fordham Road, near Bainbridge Avenue.
