Elderly woman among six hurt on Staten Island in NYPD SUV crash

A 72-year-old woman waiting at a bus stop and five others were hurt when two cops in an NYPD SUV crashed into a cab on Staten Island Sunday.

A cop was behind the wheel of the NYPD sector car east on Forest Avenue with another officer — responding to a report of a gun — when they collided with a TLC livery cab heading north on Broadway in West Brighton around 11:15 p.m. Sunday, authorities said.

The cabbie then hit a Lincoln that was also at the intersection — before the NYPD vehicle struck a 72-year-old woman waiting for a bus, police said.
