Ten people, including two children and two NYPD officers were reportedly injured when a patrol vehicle struck a crowd of people in the Longwood section of the Bronx on Thursday afternoon. Two of the injured were reportedly in critical condition.
Officers were responding to a report of a car being stolen not far from the scene, and when the patrol vehicle approached the intersection, police say the officers crossed over the double yellow line as a gray Acura attempted to make a left turn, Fox5 reports.
The police vehicle apparently clipped the front of the Acura and lost control, driving onto the sidewalk and striking six pedestrians.
Two of the injured are reportedly children, a 5-year-old who was on the sidewalk, and a 2-year-old in the Acura.
