The accident happened in the vicinity of West 135th Street and Broadway, where a Honda Pilot hit a Lincoln car shortly after 7:30 p.m. The impact caused the Honda to jump the curb, strike the pedestrian and then slam into the store, the New York City Organic Deli. The incident was captured on surveillance video.

Five other people were also injured in the crash. NBC New York identified the injured pedestrian as 60-year-old Jose Colon, who was pinned under the SUV and sustained severe leg injuries. The video showed Colon warning another pedestrian that the vehicle was heading in their direction just prior to the crash.

Police were trying to determine which driver was responsible for the initial collision. No arrests have been made in the case as the investigation continues.

Inspectors were at the scene to evaluate the structural stability of the building.
