A van jumped a curb and hit at least three people near Penn Station, police said. According to NBC, the vehicle jumped the curb near West 31st Street and Seventh Avenue at about 5:30 p.m., according to authorities.
None of the people who were hit sustained serious injuries, according to police. A photo shows fireman standing around one of the injured in the incident.
The van remained at the scene; it remains unclear if the collision was accidental or premeditated.
Roadways around the busy transit hub are blocked off by fire and police vehicles, and both motorists and pedestrians should avoid the area.
Literally just finished crossing the street in front of Penn Station when a car slammed into people. Heard the hit, screams and ran for it
