Up to three people have been hit by a car in Lower Manhattan.

The crash happened at Broadway and Liberty Sts, near Zucotti Park about 1.20pm local time.

One of the victims may have been riding a bike, police say.

A car with a badly damaged front, is on the footpath.
Police and fire departments are at the scene and the driver of the vehicle is in custody.


The severity of the injuries was not known.

A truck driver deliberately mounted a footpath in New York on Halloween, killing eight.
