THE BRONX — A group of pedestrians were hurt, some of them critically, when a livery car jumped a curb and slammed into them in the Bronx, fire officials said.
It happened shortly before 8 a.m. at 194th Street and Valentine Avenue, officials said.
Footage from the scene showed a black car mangled on the sidewalk with a broken umbrella and debris surrounding it.
A witness said she knew immediately knew something “terrible” had happened. She said a school bus stop is near the scene of the crash, though it wasn’t clear if the children were on their way to school when they were hit.
It sounded “like an explosion,” the witness said. “I thought the wall was falling down.”
Six victims total were injured, FDNY said. Three of those victims are children and two of them are in critical condition. Three patients are in serious condition and the final victim suffered minor injuries, authorities said.
