A vehicle jumped the curb and struck three pedestrians on a sidewalk in Lower Manhattan Thursday afternoon, police said.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Broadway and Liberty Street, near Zuccotti Park, shortly before 1:30 p.m., a police spokeswoman said. The Lincoln continued eastbound and struck the rear-end of a Mercedes SUV before coming to a stop. A bicyclist was also injured.

The five victims are not believed to have life threatening injuries.

Police said it appears the crash was an accident, not an intentional act.

Police continue to investigate the cause of the suspected road rage.

Video of the scene showed a black vehicle with NY license plates having sustained heavy front-end damage. The driver was taken into custody for questioning, WNBC reported.
