Major Emergency Response in Times Square After Car Apparently Jumps Curb


Emergency vehicles swarmed the Crossroads of the World Thursday after getting a report of several pedestrians hit by a vehicle. 

There was no immediate word on possible injuries, but witnesses posted on social media that multiple people appeared to be hurt. Fire officials say they got a call shortly before noon about an accident at 43rd Street and Seventh Avenue. 

Social media erupted with concern as witnesses described screaming and abject chaos. Someone tweeted a photo of a maroon-looking sedan halfway on its side after appearing to crash into a traffic pole. Smoke emanated from the hood.

Live traffic cameras showed a gigantic emergency response in the area; at least five fire trucks blocked off the intersection immediately near the scene and a line of police cruises, alarms and lights blaring, blocked off traffic near the TKTS booth.

Channel for newscaster from above link said it's "someone from the Bronx".

Which is weird to say so early.
