NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — First responders rushed out to a corner in Queens Friday night after officials say a driver jumped a curb following a collision with another vehicle.

The FDNY says the vehicle struck an Uber SUV near the corner of Steinway Street and 20th Road in Astoria around 6:30 p.m., causing it to jump the sidewalk and strike the side of a home.

Six people were hurt in the chaos, according to the FDNY. Four of the injuries were considered serious, but non-life threatening.

“The noise from the impact, I thought the whole building was going to collapse,” witness Nick Alissandratos said.

All six were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
