Ten people were injured, including two children, after an NYPD vehicle collided with a car and crashed into a Bronx sidewalk Thursday afternoon, authorities said.
The collision happened at about 3 p.m. EDT near the intersection of Hoe and Westchester Avenues, which is a little more than two miles east of Yankee Stadium, police said.
A total of 10 people were injured, NYPD Chief of Patrol Jeffrey Maddrey told reporters. The victims include a 65-year-old, a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old, Maddrey said.
Two police officers were also among the injured, the FDNY said.
Two officers were in their marked vehicle when it ran into a civilian’s car and “as a result of the collision, the police vehicle mounted a curb and struck multiple pedestrians,” according to an NYPD statement. The seriousness of their injuries was not immediately known.
The officers were responding to a larceny call when it was cut off in traffic, NBC New York reported.
