NEW YORK -- Multiple people were struck by a vehicle near Pennsylvania Station in New York City, a New York Police Department spokesperson said Tuesday.

Two women and one man were injured but their injuries are non-life-threatening. The collision appears to be an accident, the spokesperson said.

The crash took place around 5:30 p.m. on Friday near 32nd Street and Seventh Avenue when a red commercial van jumped a curb and struck the pedestrians.


The motorist, a 62-year-old New York man, told police his floor mat became stuck on top of the gas pedal, causing the car to roll through the intersection.

There was no indication that alcohol was involved in the crash, an NYPD spokesperson said in a news conference Friday evening.


The driver was shaken up from the crash, but had been cooperating with police, the spokesperson said.

Police are interviewing witnesses in the area as they investigate the cause of the crash, CBS New York reports.
