CYPRESS HILLS, Brooklyn — A livery driver was attacked during a collision in Brooklyn earlier this month, police said.

The 25-year-old livery driver was operating a black Toyota Camry on Aug. 4 when he collided with a Nissan Rogue in the vicinity of Logan Street and Atlantic Avenue in Cypress Hills around 6:30 a.m., police said.
