Alleged Stolen Vehicle Smashes Half-Block of Cars on Manhattan Street: Police

There was no immediate word on injuries, nor were the circumstances surrounding the alleged theft immediately clear

One person is in custody after a stolen vehicle smashed into multiple cars on a Manhattan street early Monday, authorities say. 

Cops got a call about a multi-car accident involving a stolen vehicle near West 134th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard in Harlem shortly before 9:15 a.m. It's not exactly clear how many vehicles were hit, nor was there immediate information on possible injuries. 

The circumstances surrounding the reported theft aren't clear. 

Chopper 4 over the scene showed about a half-dozen cops in the middle of the street, two collided vehicles not far from them. Multiple other vehicles also appeared to have been hit; blue caution tape blocked off the area as authorities investigated.
