MIDTOWN — A car crash injured four people in Manhattan Monday afternoon in front of the Apple Store, officials said.
The collision happened at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street at about 2:52 p.m., the FDNY said. All the injured people were taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital, fire officials said.
Witnesses said the car was heading east on 59th Street when it hit the pole.
Anzrey Babaev, 28, was working for a pedicab company near the intersection when he heard the collision.
Babaev turned around and saw two people lying on the ground and bleeding.
He then went over to the car and tried to help the driver and female passenger who was in the back seat get out of the vehicle.
"He looked sick," Babaev said about the driver, who appeared to have fainted.
The woman did not seem to be seriously injured.
The extent of the injuries to the pedestrians was not immediately clear, but officials said they were not life threatening.
The cause of the crash has yet to be determined, but police said there was no criminality.
The car is part of the ride-sharing app Lyft, the company confirmed, but it was not immediately clear if the woman in the backseat had used the service to get a ride in the vehicle.
"We’re reaching out to all involved to gather more details," a spokeswoman for the company said in an email statement. "We will continue to help those involved in any way we can and are standing by to support the authorities as needed."
