A woman has died after she was hit and then dragged along the street by a New York cab, according to police.
Pelagia Zingatan, 65, who worked at a medical center on the Upper East Side of Manhattan was crossing the street with a friend when a taxi minivan plowed into her on Monday afternoon.
Ms Zingatan was dragged along the street under the back tire, bystanders said, before the vehicle came to a halt.
Now in most places, New York included, require special licenses for taxi cabs. That goes beyond the licensing and registration of cars and drivers.
So what “Common sense” laws could have prevented this “Gun Death”?
