Police say the injured pedestrians were hospitalized, including one in critical condition.

Video shows a dark-colored minivan speeding down a street in reverse.

Police say the driver is in his 70s and remained at the scene. Police say he may have mistaken the gas pedal for the brakes.

A man who runs a parking lot across the street tells the New York Post “it sounded like a big boom.” He says he saw people under the vehicle and “a lot of blood.”

CBS reported that the incident unfolded as a man was trying to park close to Canal Street, between Allen and Forsyth Streets.

The vehicle reportedly jumped a curb and hit the crowd as they stood at a food cart.
