Around 8 p.m. on Tuesday, a gray BMW making a left turn from Canal St. onto Greenwich St. bumped a silver Mitsubishi going eastbound on Canal. The glancing impact sent the Mitsubishi up onto the curb, where it took out a light pole and two trees before coming to rest. Each driver claimed they were going slowly and that the other driver was speeding. But Jerry, a homeless man who witnessed the whole thing, said he’d been watching how long it was taking the Beemer to make the turn through the traffic, when the other car suddenly came up fast through an empty lane. “C’mon, he just tapped the dude,” Jerry said of the BMW driver, who said he lived in Tribeca, “near Odeon.” Just a few weeks ago, in another frightening accident, an eastbound Beemer hit a turning cab at the same intersection, causing the taxi to lose control and go caroming down Greenwich St. smashing into things, moving a heavy sidewalk planter by 10 feet.
