Midtown Movie Car Chase Ends with Car Jumping Curb, Injuring Two

The New York Post
has posted shocking video of a movie car chase being filmed in Times
Square that ended with a car losing control, jumping the curb and
injuring two pedestrians. (Warning: this includes some graphic images):

Fortunately, according to the AP, the pedestrians' injuries were not life-threatening.

It's not clear how tightly the set was controlled at the time. According to the Post,
one of those injured was not associated with the movie, and the car
ended up smashed into the Sbarro at the corner of 47th and Broadway,
which was open for business.

Thanks to Gothamist, where we first saw the story.
