The condition of the victim was not immediately known, according to police. 

Video footage from the scene shows the airbags in the black Nissan Pathfinder with Florida license plates deployed.

The NYPD gave a description of the suspect to Citizen App, describing him as a black man around 5’7″ tall wearing a black T-shirt with a white circle logo on the front and another logo on the back – as well as blue jeans and black-and-white sneakers. 

A security worker who witnessed the crash said in a video uploaded to the Citizen App that he had to dive for safety between two cars.

‘When I look, I see a vehicle coming towards me. It was going so fast I jumped between those two cars,’ the man said.

The security worker said in the video that the man had been driving on the sidewalk before the crash.

The Saturday slashing comes amid a recent spike in violent crimes in the Big Apple, including another man who was slashed in the head on a subway platform in Times Square on Friday night.

The man, 35, was waiting for a 1/2/3 train just before 7 p.m. before the brazen attack in the Big Apple’s busiest station, according to the New York Post.

The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to Bellevue Hospital and is expected to recover, police told the outlet.

Pictures taken outside the subway station show the victim with a heavily bandaged face being taken to an ambulance by EMTs.

The man’s face and clothing can be seen covered in blood, while pictured from inside the subway station show pools of blood on the floor.

Further details about that stabbing were not immediately known.  

Earlier on Friday, surveillance footage captured a daylight shooting just one block away from NYPD headquarters in the Manhattan neighborhood of Two Bridges. 

Cops said that the bullet missed the intended target and instead hit a 46-year-old man who was sitting on nearby steps at the Alfred E. Smith Houses. The intended target then runs away with a small dog following behind him.

The victim heard the shot and felt pain in his left arm before he then took himself to a local hospital for treatment.

The gunman was dressed in a black sweatshirt, black pants and white sneakers and was seen on video running in the opposite direction.
