” A drone crashed on the Upper West Side Friday evening. The drone apparently fell out of the sky at 61st Street and Columbus around 6:30 p.m. The drone landed near a delivery man riding a bicycle.
No one was injured. It’s not yet known who the drone belongs to.It’s a radio-controlled quad copter that had a go-pro camera still rolling. A man who works for fivethirtyeight.com witnessed and tweeted about the accident.
