A taxi crashed into a Japanese restaurant on the Upper East Side on Friday afternoon, sending the driver and a pedestrian to the hospital and leaving two others with minor injuries, officials said.
The vehicle jumped the sidewalk on East 81st Street near Second Avenue in Manhattan around 4:45 p.m. and crashed into the entryway of the Amura eatery, according to the NYPD, the FDNY and video posted to the Citizen app.
The driver suffered a broken leg, and three other people were injured, the agencies said.
Two of those injured refused medical attention, while the driver and another hurt person who was cut on the leg were taken to an area hospital, the FDNY said.
No criminality is suspected, cops said.
It wasn’t immediately clear if any diners were among the injured.
