Three people suffered life-threatening injuries when a taxi went off the road and over the curb in the heart of the New York borough of Manhattan on Monday afternoon. According to the police, three other people were injured, including the driver. They were also taken to hospital but are not believed to have life-threatening injuries.

The scene of the action was a few blocks south of the Empire State Building in an area with many hotels, bars and restaurants. According to initial investigations, the yellow taxi turned left onto Broadway and initially collided with a cyclist. The taxi driver then dodged onto the sidewalk, finally accelerated and pushed two women against a wall with his car.

According to the police, the vehicle crashed into a snack bar in front of which some customers were outside. John Chell of the New York Police Department explained told reporters that after the impact, around 15 to 20 passers-by tried to lift the taxi to get the women out of their plight.

It was initially unclear how the incident could have happened. Police are still investigating the details of the collision and the exact cause. However, she assumes that it was an accident.
