Car flips onto roof on sidewalk near Times Square

Police say a car involved in a crash about a block from New York's Times Square flipped over onto a sidewalk, injuring several pedestrians.

Nearly a dozen people were hurt in the chaotic crash at West 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue.

Police say approximately eight people were hospitalized, but none appeared to have life-threatening injuries.

Police say Saturday night's accident began when the car that ended up on the sidewalk of West 42nd Street rear-ended another vehicle at the intersection. The second vehicle then struck a yellow cab. The first car somehow ended up on its roof.
