THE BRONX — A group of men crashed their car into two vehicles, injuring passengers in other cars, while fleeing police in The Bronx Monday afternoon, according to the NYPD.
Several officers were in an unmarked police car when they saw two men fire a weapon in front of 3305 Third Ave. at about 3:10 p.m., a police spokesman said.
No one was hit, but the men jumped into a Dodge car with another man and took off.
Officers followed the vehicle, which took a left on Trinity Avenue and started driving the wrong way on the one-way street, according to the NYPD.
The Dodge then slammed into a livery cab on Trinity Avenue, injuring a female passenger.
She was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition.
The suspects sped off again after the collision and then crashed into a Honda sedan at East 167th Street and Intervale Avenue, the spokesman said.
A man in the Honda was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
The suspects then fled on foot and were apprehended about a block away at East 167th and Kelly streets.
A gun was recovered at Intervale Avenue.
The men were taken to a local precinct and were expected to be charged.
