At least nine people were injured Thursday after an SUV crashed into a car and jumped a curb in New York City, striking pedestrians.

The crash happened on West 37th Street and Ninth Avenue around 12:30 p.m. local time, the city's fire department told Fox News.

Four of the injured people were in serious but stable condition, while five others suffered minor injuries, all non-life threatening, the city’s fire department told Fox News.


The cab driver told Fox News the crash appeared to be accidental, adding that the SUV hit the driver's car and a parked vehicle before it jumped the curb and went into the apartment building. He said there appeared to be several people in the car.

A witness also said the driver of the SUV was a woman and there were four passengers -- three adults and one child -- in the car. He added that a woman sitting in the front passenger seat appeared seriously wounded, though she was conscious.
