Pedestrian hit by taxi in Liverpool city centre
A pedestrian was left sprawled on the ground after being hit by a taxi in Liverpool city centre last week.
The incident occurred at around 5pm last Tuesday 20 June, and resulted in three police cars attending the scene of the accident at the busy junction between Paradise Street and Hanover Street in Liverpool.
The impact left half of the taxi’s front windscreen shattered but remarkably the pedestrian – a man believed to be in his 40’s or 50’s – is thought to have escaped with only minor head injuries.
The victim was taken to Aintree Hospital following the rush hour collision, while the taxi driver stopped at the scene and co-operated fully with the police – with the investigation still ongoing.
The road traffic accident caused minor delays to traffic around Liverpool city centre, and affected buses leaving the Liverpool ONE bus station.
Talking about the accident, a Merseyside Police spokesman said:
“We were called at 5.05pm to reports of a collision involving a pedestrian reported to be in his 40s and a black cab on Paradise Street.
“The man sustained a minor head injury, and he was conscious and talking.
“The driver stopped at the scene and is cooperating with police. Investigations are ongoing.”
