MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say seven hotel employees were hit by an apparently stolen car fleeing downtown Miami, although none of the injuries appeared life-threatening.

The car was leaving the valet area of the J.W. Marriott hotel on Wednesday morning when it hit the workers outside the hotel.

Miami Fire Rescue spokesman Ignatius Carroll said five of the seven workers were taken to a hospital. One appeared to be in serious condition after he was pinned or run over by the car.

Carroll says no hotel guests were injured.

Police are trying to locate the Lexus and determine whether it was stolen or involved in a carjacking. The Lexus struck six other vehicles as it sped away from the hotel.
