One person is dead and at least five are injured after a vehicle reportedly struck several pedestrians in Chinatown Monday night, officials said.
First responders arrived to a chaotic scene at Canal and Forsyth Sts. shortly before 6:50 p.m., where they found one victim dead on the scene and several others seriously hurt.
A high-ranking police department source said the crash happened when an older man was parking his car.
“It looks like a straightforward traffic collision,” said the official.
The motorist stayed at the scene, said the source.
