• A cab hit a horse-drawn carriage on Central Park South last night, rear-ending it and throwing a woman out onto the sidewalk and the horse onto the street, with the carriage on top of it, according to a witness. A man in the buggy suffered a head injury that was not life-threatening, and the three other passengers suffered minor injuries. The horse was fine. [NYDN]
