FED HAS SMASHING TIME IN MIDTOWN By ERIN CALABRESE and LAUREN ELKIES - New York Post Online Edition: News: "July 22, 2006 -- A State Department worker cruising down 34th Street with three scantily clad women in what appeared to be a government car with flashing lights collided with a yellow cab last night after allegedly running a red light, police said.
The unnamed fed - who was armed according to witnesses - was shouting at other motorists through a public address loudspeaker in the car as he maneuvered his Buick LeSabre westbound in the eastbound lane on East 34th Street at about 11:30 p.m.
He allegedly ran a red light at Lexington Avenue and was broadsided by the cab, cops said.
'He was yelling, stay to the right, stay to the right, on his loudspeaker with his red light running. And that's when he went through the red light and hit the cab,' said Erin Melius, 25. 'We were like, 'What is this guy doing?' And then it was like, 'Boom!' '
The witnesses spotted the three young women in the car - as well as a cooler in the backseat and a case of Heineken in the trunk."
