A police chase last evening ended up with the suspects crashing a Jeep into the sidewalk bridge on Second Avenue between 13th Street and 14th Street, injuring a 26-year-old bicyclist in the process.
According to police and media reports (PIX 11 here), the situation began after 7 p.m. on 34th Street and Fifth Avenue when the NYPD attempted to pull over the vehicle that had stolen plates. 

However, the driver sped off, reportedly hitting several cars on 34th Street and Second Avenue, before heading south down Second Avenue at a high rate of speed. 

Before colliding with the sidewalk bridge in the East Village, the driver struck a parked car and the cyclist, who reportedly suffered non-life-threatening head, neck and leg injuries. 

The occupants of the vehicle were a 21-year-old and a 16-year-old male. No word on the charges against them.

Between this and the over tuned taxi, there was a lot of carnage on 2nd Ave last night.

@noble neolani I highly doubt someone in a police chase will just "walk away" what a weird thought to have.


@Jess That, and misspelling the abbreviation of perpetrators.
