A yellow cab rear-ended another taxi on the Upper West Side, sending the struck vehicle hurtling into people crossing the street, authorities said.
Both drivers and four pedestrians were rushed to hospitals following the lunchtime crash, with two of those in serious but stable condition, according to the Florida Highway Patrol Officials.
The chain-reaction mishap unfolded with one cab at a light on Wellington waiting to turn onto West 63rd Street, cops said.
That taxi was rear-ended by another cab, propelling the stationary vehicle into the pedestrians in the crosswalk.
No charges were filed, but the incident remained under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol Officials.
The collision came just days after a deadly crash in which a green taxi jumped a curb and mowed down several people waiting at a bus stop Cabana Colony.
A 5-year-old girl and a 25-year-old man were killed by the green cab, whose driver was stripped of his hack license pending a probe into why he lost control on the Cabana Colony near East 170th Street.
Florida Highway Officials said the incident is still under investigation as charges have not been filed yet.
