Yesterday's the story about the car crash at West Broadway and West Houston got a bit of a twist when it turned out an assistant chief of police was driving the SUV was crashed into another car, then a building, as well as pedestrians. That's why the scene was positively swaming with cops! John McManus is second-in-command in Internal Affairs and was driving a city-owned Jeep Cherokee when he was making a left turn from West Houston onto West Broadway. Witnesses described the SUV as going "airborne" over the Con Ed site on West Broadway, and a delivery man and woman were hit by the Jeep. The two drivers and two pedestrians were treated for minor injuries. There are no charges being filed either, but here's a fun fact: McManus was in charge of security during the Republican National Convention, according to the Post.
