A car crash on Union Street and Fourth Avenue injured a pregnant woman riding in one of the vehicles Friday afternoon, according to officials.
"I was stopped and as soon as [the traffic light] went green, I hit the gas," said Damian Troise, whose four months pregnant girlfriend was riding in the passenger seat.
Troise was driving his green Saturn across Union Street when he collided in the middle of the intersection with a livery cab heading north on Fourth Avenue.
Troise said his girlfriend hit her head on impact. She was taken to Lutheran Hospital in serious but stable condition, according to an FDNY spokesman.
Traffic was delayed for a brief period and no arrests were made.
