An Uber vehicle careened into a restaurant after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in Inwood Monday night, injuring 22 people, including three children, the NYPD said.
A driver in a white Audi was leaving a gas station near Inwood Bar & Grill, on Broadway near West 204th Street, around 9 p.m. when they struck an Uber vehicle traveling north on the avenue, police said.
The Uber driver, in a Toyota RAV4, lost control and hit the restaurant, leaving several people – including three girls, ages 3, 7 and 10 – with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
Authorities noted that most of the injuries came from falling glass.
The Uber driver did have a passenger inside the vehicle at the time of the crash, police said. Both the driver and passenger refused medical attention.
The Audi driver fled the scene after the crash, the NYPD said.
No arrests have been made and the investigation remains ongoing.
