There was a pretty bad smashup at 118th and Broadway, just outside the Barnard gates. Police were on the scene helping the taxi driver out, who was parked in his car when the van behind smashed into it. An ambulance has been called.

Purportedly, the white van swerved to avoid a large car making a U-turn at 118, and crashed into a line of parked cars. Be careful when crossing at these intersections, look both ways as well as straight ahead!
