At least 23 people, including three children, were injured after an SUV operating as an Uber crashed into a sports bar and restaurant in New York City on Monday night, officials say.

A call came in that a vehicle crashed into a building on West 204th Street and Broadway around 8:59 p.m., according to the New York City Fire Department.

Preliminary reports suggest that a driver of an Audi sedan exiting a gas station struck the back of a Toyota RAV4 which was then operating as an Uber. This caused the 31-year-old driver of the RAV4 to lose control of the car, drive onto the curb and crash into the Inwood Bar & Grill, police said.

It was not immediately clear if there were passengers in the Toyota RAV4, and Uber did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Nineteen people, including the driver of the RAV4, were taken to area hospitals while the rest refused medical attention. All had non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said.

The driver of the Audi fled. No arrests were made Tuesday morning.
