Car Slams Into Upper East Side Office

A driver crashed along a busy commercial strip of the Upper East Side Monday, hurtling onto the sidewalk and shattering the front window of a business on Second Avenue. 

The FDNY said a motorist lost control of his vehicle near 79th Street and Second Avenue at about 2 p.m. and crashed into the storefront window of Bond New York, a real estate office.

Two passengers in the vehicle had minor injuries, and the driver was taken to New York Hospital. 

It's not clear how the driver lost control of the car. No charges have been filed.

On Saturday, a cement truck hit a 63-year-old woman crossing Second Avenue at 68th Street, severing her leg below the knee. The woman was not crossing in the crosswalk, and the driver had a valid license, police said.
