SUV crashes into Manhattan restaurant , leaving 22 people injured


MANHATTAN, NY – A collision between two vehicles sent one of them crashing into a New York City restaurant Monday night, according to a report by ABC News.

The NYPD said the driver of an Audi had come out of a gas station in the Inwood section of Upper Manhattan at about 9 p.m. and slammed into the back of a Toyota sport utility vehicle.

The impact caused the driver of the Toyota to lose control and the vehicle went onto a curb and then struck the front window of the restaurant, the Inwood Bar and Grill near West 204th Street and Broadway.

The incident left 22 people injured.  19 of the victims were transported to area hospitals, while the other three declined medical attention.  Authorities said none of the injuries were life-threatening and most were caused by flying glass.

The driver of the Audi fled the scene of the crash and remains at large.  Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call Crime Stoppers.
