A routine inspection stop turned dangerous for a Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) lieutenant when the livery driver allegedly sped off, injuring the woman.

The lieutenant and a TLC inspector started following the man’s town car Sunday afternoon when they noticed it had livery cab plates, but lacked the decals needed to legally operate, a TLC spokesman said.

After seeing a passenger exit the vehicle, the two TLC officials approached the driver near Archer Avenue and Sutphin Boulevard about 1:30 p.m., according to the spokesman.

Shortly after the officials began speaking with the driver, he allegedly drove off, striking two vehicles he was parked in between and the lieutenant. The town car then dragged the woman for several feet.

She was taken to Jamaica Hospital where she received several stitches after hitting her head on the ground and was later released, the spokesman said.

The livery cab driver fled the scene and police are still investigating, according to officials.
