A cyclist collided with a cab at the intersection of Fourth Avenue and 10th Street shortly after 7 p.m. this evening.

The cab driver, Abou Coulibaly, said the bike rider was heading east on 10th Street and ran a red light. When an MTA bus crossed her path, she tried to turn back and collided with the cab, which was going north on Fourth Avenue.

“Nothing happened to her,” said Mr. Coulibaly, who said he had been driving a cab for three years. “No cuts or bruises, but she was pregnant. I was almost to a complete stop but I bumped her a little bit.”

The cabbie added, “She didn’t want to call an ambulance but I said, ‘Get yourself treated!'” The cyclist was eventually taken to the hospital and was not on the scene when The Local arrived. A police officer confirmed the incident but would not comment on details.

“You know how it is,” said Mr. Coulibaly. “Sometimes they think they can make the light.”
