Suspect wanted after hit-and-run accident at New York restaurant leaves 22 injured
A total of 22 people were injured after a car crashed into an upper Manhattan restaurant on Monday night. Three people refused to receive medical treatment at the scene and 19 others were transported to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the NYPD.
Police responded to a 911 call about a vehicle collision involving multiple injuries around 9 p.m. at the Inwood Bar and Grill, officials said.
A preliminary investigation has determined that an Audi sedan exited a gas station on West 204 St and Broadway and collided with the rear of a Toyota RAV4 on Broadway, officials said.
The 31-year-old driver of the Toyota then lost control of his car and the vehicle swerved onto the pavement and slammed into the front window of the Inwood Bar and Grill, officials said.
The driver of the Audi sedan did not remain at the scene and the vehicle was last seen heading north on Broadway, officials said.
The driver of the Toyota was transported to New York Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in stable condition, officials said.
Officials said the investigation is still ongoing.
