Well, this is horrible: A man parking his car in Maspeth, Queens, earlier today seems to have hit the gas instead of the brake, subsequently plowing his car into five kids on the sidewalk. Amazingly, none of the victims are in life-threatening condition, although two of the girls who were pinned under the car suffered broken bones. A group of bystanders managed to lift the car up so they could be rescued.
“I couldn’t even go to school,” a witness and friend of one of the victims said. “I was throwing up. I can’t stop thinking about it.”
(Warning: As promised in the headline, the video shows a car slamming into a kid, and it’s as bad as you would expect.)
