At least six people were hurt when a auto ended up on a sidewalk after crashing into two other vehicles in Lower Manhattan.

Cops have said the vehicle was involved in at least two crashes before coming to a stop near Liberty Street and Broadway.

Police said none of the injuries are considered life-threatening. The driver remained at the scene, police said, adding that one of the victims may have been riding a bicycle.
