SUV Jumps Curb In Midtown, 6 Pedestrians Injured

On Friday, a SUV jumped a curb at Fifth Ave. and E. 46th St. and barreled into a group of pedestrians. The vehicle hit six people, including a child in a stroller. Concerned bystanders rushed the vehicle after it stopped to ensure that no further bloodshed occurred.

The injured child was rushed to New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center; several of the adult victims also had serious injuries. New York police weren't immediately sure what caused the SUV to jump the curb and drive onto the sidewalk in front of a Barnes & Noble bookstore in Manhattan.

New York City walkers are vulnerable when they're in the crosswalk, but sidewalk pedestrian accidents are especially terrifying because walkers rarely realize they're in danger until it's too late.

Curb-jumping accidents can result from a variety of circumstances:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Medical conditions

Regardless of the reason, the driver is liable to the victims for the resulting harm. If you've been injured by a vehicle, a New York City pedestrian accident attorney can help you explore your legal options.
