Josh Einiger has more on the accident from the Upper East Side.

On Sunday night as police scooped up the wrecked taxis and as restaurant workers swept up mounds of scattered food, two cab drivers were blaming each other for the near-disaster on 85th Street.

The accident happened on a lazy summer Sunday afternoon. One cab was heading down Second Avenue, the other was heading west on 85th Street.

The smaller cab plowed into a sidewalk café, mangling a baby stroller. Luckily eyewitnesses say its one-year-old occupant had been in his mother's lap right next to that stroller. The baby suffered just a cut on the leg. Two other people were also injured.

The severity of what could have been meant NYPD crash reconstruction experts spent hours trying to figure out which of the two drivers was at fault. In the end, both drivers escaped the worst consequences, because there were no serious injuries.
