UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan — Six people were injured when a cab jumped a curb on the Upper West Side Monday afternoon.

The crash happened around 4:30 p.m. near Broadway and W. 62nd Street.

Cab driver Michael Pervaz said as he was picking up a passenger, he was hit from behind by a black Honda sedan that police say was traveling at a high rate of speed.

Out of control, the cab landed on the sidewalk, striking three pedestrians and the operator of a food cart. The food cart then hit a Con Edison truck.

A 39-year-old woman was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition. Three people were treated for minor injuries.

The driver, who was not hurt, passed a breathalyzer test at the scene.

Mark Estephan told PIX11 it was "scary" seeing the taxi on the sidewalk, knowing many more people could have been hurt.

Police are now looking for a 1999 Honda Accord with Pennsylvania license plates that caused the accident, but drove away from the scene.
