    The eight other people hit by the car that jumped the curb were expected to be OK. After hitting the pedestrians, the car plowed into a sidewalk shed, causing it to collapse, authorities said.

    Police said the driver told investigators that her brakes failed. She and a male passenger in the car with her were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening back and neck injuries, authorities said.

    The driver passed a Breathalyzer test and was not charged.
