- Three women are in critical condition after a taxi jumped from a sidewalk in Manhattan. Six people were injured and a woman had to have her leg amputated after the horrific accident. The accident happened just before 1:00 p.m. on Monday. The taxi jumped from the curb on Broadway at 29th Street. According to authorities, a man on a CitiBike blew a red light into the cab lane, causing the collision. A crowd of people worked together to lift the taxi off one of the women who was strapped into the car. (WABC-TV)

The assessments were released just a day before early voting began and just over a week before Primary Day. The two bar associations gave Thomas Oliva and Karen Lane an “approval” rating, while the other candidates received “unapproved” ratings. Read about all the candidates and their qualifications at the link. (Queens Daily Eagle)
