An SUV crashed into a building on Sixth Avenue near West 17th Street in Manhattan Monday afternoon, injuring multiple people. 

Around 2:30 p.m. the driver, who has not yet been identified, apparently drove through a protected bike lane, over a curb, onto a sidewalk and through the front window of the T-Mobile store, injuring four people, according to Transportation Alternatives Executive Director Paul Steely White. The crash occurred just steps from a public school, White said.

Witness Andy Zhang shared images of the chaos on Twitter, saying "A car veered off the street at 6th Ave and 18th St, crashing into a T-Mobile. Car is heavily damaged, people have been injured. #NYC #CarCrash." He also shared a video of a person being taken away on a stretcher. 

"I managed to get photos from the ground and from my apartment upstairs," Zhang told Metro.
