Cab Hits Pedestrian In Downtown Pittsburgh

DOWNTOWN (KDKA) — A pedestrian was hit by a cab in downtown Pittsburgh.

It happened at Wood Street and Liberty Avenue near the T-station.

KDKA’s Paul Martino reports the unidentified male walked into the path of the cab.

His injuries were serious and he was taken to Mercy Hospital. He is listed in stable condition.

Police say mixing pedestrians and cars downtown often becomes a dangerous situation.

“Anytime you have people crossing the street and cars driving on the street you have a potential collision,” Pittsburgh Police Sgt. James Vogel said.

    Well half the time if people in the city would correctly obey walking signals you wouldn’t have this problem. Time & again, I see people down by the T-station simply walking out into the street. Hopefully he recovers from his injuries and should count his blessings.
