New York City Republican Mayoral Candidate Curtis Sliwa was hit by a cab before completing a radio appearance Friday, according to his campaign.

Sliwa was transported to Lenox Hill Hospital after completing the radio show appearance, according to NBC New York.

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.
