Law enforcement tells TMZ ... a dazed and confused Gavin DeGraw was struck by a cab minutes after being assaulted in NYC Sunday night.

We're told a witness saw the cab strike the singer and called 911. When paramedics arrived, they observed facial injuries and Gavin was transported by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital.

Gavin's rep tells TMZ the singer is being treated for multiple serious injuries -- including a concussion, broken nose, black eyes, cuts and bruises.

TMZ broke the story ... Gavin was attacked by multiple assailants late Sunday night. It's unclear what motivated the attack.

Oh go*****hat is awful! It's so weird, yesterday was my birthday, and I hung out with him in Nashville two years ago yesterday (on my birthday)! Had a fun night with a bunch of friends, so I was thinking about him yesterday for a moment, wondering how he was. How horrible!

Gavin's the man, hope this doesn't mess up his tour. Met him at his bar in Brooklyn, nice guy.

wow I feel like a real bitch but I had to chuckle a little when I saw this. Talk about being at the wrong place at the wrong time. That being said, I wish him a speedy recovery.

Can't say that I'm surprised that he got rolled at 4 am and then got hit by a cab. It also wouldn't surprise me if the ambulance arrived an hour after they were called. Bellevue was just the icing on the cake.
