A taxi registered to City Cab and a truck were involved in an accident in the intersection of Franklin Avenue and 48 Street, just outside of Glen’s Your Independent Grocer, on Monday afternoon.

Bystanders crowded around and were instructed by police to keep their distance.

It is unknown if anyone was injured as a result of the incident, but the drivers of both the cab and truck did not appear to be injured.

Both drivers declined to be interviewed.
