In a shocking incident that unfolded late Sunday night, a driver attempting to evade the New York Police Department (NYPD) injured eight pedestrians after driving onto a crowded sidewalk in Midtown Manhattan. Cellphone footage captured the manic scene, showing the out-of-control Mercedes desperately trying to escape the pursuing officers.
The chaos ensued when police intervened during an altercation at the corner of 33rd and Seventh Avenue. As officers approached, the 44-year-old driver accelerated, choosing a reckless escape route that led him down the wrong way on 34th Street. During the attempt to flee, several cars and innocent bystanders were struck.
Tragically, among those injured was a police officer who bravely attempted to subdue the driver, as well as a 39-year-old woman who became trapped under a food truck. Both victims were rushed to the hospital, and their conditions remain unknown.
The frantic chase finally came to an end when the suspect careened into an outdoor dining shed at a Peruvian restaurant, causing significant damage. The owner, now facing an uncertain future, expressed concerns about the Department of Buildings’ decision on when they can reopen.
The driver, whose identity has not been released, was apprehended by officers at the scene. Currently in critical condition, he has been transported to Bellevue Hospital where he will receive medical treatment. Pending further investigation, charges against the driver are expected to be filed.
As news of the incident spreads, the community stands united in shock and concern for the injured victims. Authorities will continue their investigation, aiming to uncover the motives behind the driver’s dangerous actions.
