Manhattan, NY — A chain-reaction crash sent a pickup truck into a crowd of pedestrians, killing an 89-year-old woman in Upper Manhattan. The fatal automobile accident occurred Thursday, June 2, 2011, at the corner of West 145th Street and Seventh Avenue, reported the New York Times.

According to police, a silver Lincoln Town Car livery cab was making a left turn onto 145th Street when a southbound Toyota pickup truck slammed into the car. The impact of the crash catapulted the Town Car onto the sidewalk, where it hit a group of pedestrians.
