A vehicle plowed into a crowd of about 50 people at a Black Lives Matter protest on Friday afternoon in the middle of Manhattan, with multiple people injured, a spokesman for the New York City police department said.
The incident happened after 4pm at the corner of 39th Street and Third Avenue in midtown east, police said.
