NEW YORK (AP) — Officials say several people have been injured by a car at a protest in midtown Manhattan.
Witnesses say the protest march was passing through an intersection at around 4 p.m. when a car went into the crowd.
The New York Fire Department says six people were hospitalized.
Police and fire officials said the injuries didn’t appear to be life-threatening.
The circumstances of what caused the car to go into the protest were unclear.
Authorities say the driver remained at the scene at 39th Street and Third Avenue.
A participant says the march was aimed at drawing attention to an ongoing hunger strike by immigration detainees at a jail in New Jersey.
