Isaac Abraham’s account of the Glauber Williamsburg crash is false

You can read about the crash here. From that article (emphasis mine):

Abraham said the livery cab’s engine ended up in the backseat where Raizy Glauber was sitting before she was ejected.

The driver of the livery cab, Pedro Nuniz, suffered only minor injuries.

What’s wrong with this story? Well, for the cab engine to have hit the cab’s backseat, it would have had to pass through – and most likely kill or severely injure – the driver in the front of the vehicle. This is especially true since the cab in question – a Toyota Camry – is front wheel drive, which means the engine is transversely mounted and would have a much better chance of hitting the driver than a longitudinally mounted engine.

Curious, I searched for pics of the wreck, which I found here and uploaded below:

Note the relatively minor impact damage to the front of the livery cab, compared to the rest of the car

Contrary to Abraham's account of the crash, this was clearly a side impact incident

Clearly, from the pics, there is quite literally no way the crash occurred as Abraham said. The BMW’s engine is still in its bay, so even if Abraham had gotten the cars mixed up, his account is still wrong.
