Mayor Adams' Statement on Traffic Collision on West 28th Street and Broadway

June 20, 2022

NEW YORK– New York City Mayor Eric Adams today released the following statement after visiting the site of a traffic collision that injured several people on West 28th Street and Broadway in Manhattan earlier this afternoon:

“At this time, we know that at least six people were injured today when a taxi and a cyclist collided and innocent pedestrians were caught in the aftermath. This is a terrible tragedy, and those injured and in critical condition are in all of our prayers. We will continue to release as much information as possible when we receive it. But we should not have to accept, and I will not accept, a reality where New Yorkers die from traffic violence. Traffic safety is all of our concern, and I will continue working and taking action every day to keep New Yorkers and everyone else visiting our city safe on our streets. I also want to thank the numerous New Yorkers who came to the aid of those injured and displayed that New Yorkers will always be there for each other.”
