Hours later, a man in a motorized wheelchair was struck in a collision involving a sedan and taxi cab on Broadway and West 103rd Street in Manhattan, according to reports. The man in the wheelchair was crossing Broadway at the intersection when the cab went through the red light and struck the sedan, witnesses said.
