The driver of the white sedan was placed in handcuffs at the scene, Gothamist reported.

It’s unclear if the driver was under the influence at the time of the crash. It’s also wasn’t immediately clear if the driver would face any charges.

Residents who live upstairs from the Two Saints bar told the outlet their building when the vehicle made impact with the metal gate.

“It’s just horrible. I live right down the block and I just saw this car jump the curb and came down and started trying to help people that were injured on the street,” local resident Jeff Sussman told Gothamist.

“There was a father and two children, and then a woman trapped between the car and the pole.”
