8 hurt, some seriously, when car jumps curb in NYC

NEW YORK  — Police have arrested a New York City man in connection with a car wreck that left a half city block in shambles and severely injured a 60-year-old man.

Police say Shaun Martin, of Queens, was driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs when his car rocketed onto a Manhattan sidewalk early today.

Eight people were hurt as the car smashed through a tree, a telephone booth, parked bicycles, a parking kiosk and a flower stand.

Several people were hospitalized. One cyclist in the city’s new bike-share program was hit by a flying fire hydrant.

Police say Martin was driving a rented Nissan Altima.

They say this isn’t the first time he has been charged with inebriated driving.
