NEW YORK (WABC) — Four of the injured people were taken to Bellevue Hospital. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
The vehicle hit another car, went through a bus stop taking a bus stop pole down, jumped the sidewalk, and hit the street sign before coming to a stop.
The driver of a van, which came to a rest against scaffolding more than a block away, was taken in for questioning by police.
The FDNY requested the Department of Buildings to do a structural integrity check of a building that was struck in the crash. Firefighters have secured the scaffolding and debris.
