NEW YORK (NewsCore) -- A three-car accident in New York City Saturday night injured as many as 10 people -- including at least three pedestrians on the sidewalk, authorities said.
The horrific crash sent people who were out enjoying the nice weather fleeing for their lives as one of the vehicles, a black Jaguar, flew up onto the sidewalk on 42nd Street near Bryant Park before it overturned, witnesses said.
The accident occurred when the Jaguar rear-ended a Chevy Impala, which then smacked into a yellow cab, as they were headed west on 42nd Street near Sixth Avenue about 9:00pm local time, according to witnesses.
"I heard a loud bang, 'boom!,'" said cab driver Claude Luberisse. "I didn't see it, I just felt something hit me in the back going westbound."
Luberisse, from Queens, said people were in shock after the carnage.
"People were crying, yelling, 'How'd that happen, how'd that happen?'" he said.
Mohamed Bahieldin, who runs a halal food cart right next to the accident, said he heard the victims crying out in pain.
"I heard people yelling, 'Help, help, help.' It sounded bad, really bad," he said.
The Jaguar then rolled onto the sidewalk and struck several people before coming to a halt after slamming into a tree.
Seven people were rushed to Bellevue Hospital but none of the victims' injuries were considered life-threatening, authorities said.
No criminality was suspected, but the investigation is ongoing, cops said.
