An attendant at an East Harlem gas station was attempting to move an SUV on Thursday afternoon when he "lost control," injuring an off-duty police officer and pinning a pedestrian to the wall of an adjacent apartment building, according to the NYPD.
The pinned victim, a 34-year-old woman, was transported to New York Presbyterian Hospital where she remains in critical condition. The male off-duty officer was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
The crash took place around 2:00 p.m. at a Shell station on the corner of Lexington Avenue and East 102nd Street, according to the NYPD. NBC reports that the attendant, a 59-year-old man, hit several parked cars before rolling onto the sidewalk. He ran over the off-duty officer's foot, injuring the victim's ankle, before striking and pinning the female victim to the wall of 158 East 102nd Street, an apartment building adjacent to the station.
The driver remained at the scene and the investigation is ongoing. No charges had been filed as of Thursday afternoon.
