Hit-Run Driver in Stolen Car Crashes Into 7 Cars in Harlem, Hurting 7 People, Runs Into Subway Station: NYPD

An out-of-control driver in a stolen vehicle crashed into seven other cars in Harlem Friday evening, injuring seven people, before fleeing the scene, officials say. 

Witnesses said a black car was traveling erratically in the opposite lane of travel near 125th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue at about 5:15 p.m. when it slid sideways, hitting several other vehicles.

The wild wreck left debris up and down the block. The driver then ran off into the nearest subway.

"He could have waited for police but no, he went into the subway, jumped the turnstile and went on the subway," said witness Kevin Deshields. 

Seven people were injured and taken to the hospital, officials say. Police have not released a description of the suspect.
