An out-of-control cab careened down P Street, hitting a pick-up truck, knocking over a city tree, and landing on a brick retaining wall, inches from a townhouse.
 
The incident happened just before 1:00

p.m. across from Rose Park in the East Village. The owner of the P Street house got a call from a friend, describing what had happened.
 
“By the time I got home, I was happy to see the police were already on the scene.” She said she was shocked to see the cab so close to her house, but glad no one was hurt.
 
“The driver seemed disoriented,” the homeowner said. “I asked him if he needed some water, but he said he was fine.”
 
An antique car parked on P Street was also damaged in the accident.

Can you give me the address of the fallen tree and I will contact the city arborist to see what can be done, if someone hasn't already. Maybe we can replant, may have to be replaced.say
