On the Gothamist Newsmap, there's an item about an accident on St. Nicholas Avenue and 177th Street in Manhattan—and WPIX has more details: Around 4:30 a.m., "Police say the man was trying to break into another car when officers in a cruiser spotted him. They say he hopped into his dark-colored minivan and tried to escape patrol officers. He drove east on 177th Street, which is west-bound. Police did not disclose the speed of the impact of the head-on crash, but it crumpled the front ends of both vehicles." The driver was taken to a hospital, where he was then taken into police custody.
