At least three people have been hit by a livery cab in Manhattan in what appears to be an accident, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation.
Officials got an initial call about the crash on Liberty Street and Broadway shortly before 1:30 p.m. Thursday. The law enforcement official says the cab appears to have jumped the curb by accident, but the investigation is developing.
Video posted to the Citizen app showed a dark SUV almost entirely on the sidewalk, the front of it completely smashed. Investigators crowded the area around the car as ambulances pulled up to the scene.
There was no immediate word on how badly any of the victims may have been hurt. A bicycle appeared to be crushed under the front right tire.
Authorities said the driver has been detained.
