Pair of 3-year-olds, four adults injured when Manhattan driver jumps off sidewalk

A woman lost control of her car and struck six people, including two girls, in Manhattan on Wednesday, according to police.

The driver was near the corner of W. 190th St. and Broadway in Washington Heights when she pulled onto the sidewalk in front of RG Ortiz Funeral Home around 6:10 p.m., police said.

It crashed into the 3-year-old girls, three women and a man before getting out of the car and fleeing on foot, they added.

The driver quickly changed his mind and returned to the scene of the accident.

The girls suffered nosebleeds and were taken to Cohen Children’s Medical Center.

All three women had neck and back pain after the accident and were taken to the same hospital, police said. The man had a leg injury and was taken to Mount Sinai Morningside.

All of the victims were in stable condition as of late Wednesday night.

The driver was taken into police custody at the scene.

It was not immediately clear if he would face charges.
