Sliwa was heading to a live radio appearance at WABC when he was struck by a yellow cab, NBC New York reported.
“Don’t worry, everyone,” Sliwa tweeted. “The taxi is okay.”
A poll published last week showed New York City Democratic Mayoral Candidate Eric Adams with 61% of likely voters with Sliwa at 25%, according to NBC New York. Election day is set for Nov. 2.

Sliwa has previously slammed the current New York City leadership, claiming the administration is “destroying the quality of life” in the city. If elected, Sliwa claims he would create a new property tax so the city can hire more police.
The Sliwa campaign was contacted for comment by the Daily Caller, but did not immediately respond.
