Tipsters alerted us to a New York Times report of two automobile accidents on Friday, one of which took place on 106th and Amsterdam. 

According to the Times, “a taxi, apparently rammed from behind by a silver Hyundai, jumped onto a sidewalk” and “slammed into the window of Mama’s Pizzeria.”  Fortunately, the collision caused only minor injuries—to the cab driver and six others—and, when Bwog stopped by to snap a photo, it appeared that Mama’s had, for the most part, bounced right back.  It’s open for business today (though nearly half of the facade is covered in plywood—pictured below the jump) and drawing quite the crowd.
