CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCN/AP) — Charlotte police are investigating a car crash involving pedestrians that injured and sent multiple people to the hospital on Sunday.
Seven people were hit during the incident which was reported just before 10 a.m., according to WBTV.
A woman put her vehicle into the wrong gear, officials said.
The incident occurred on Phifer Street off College Street in the area better known as “The Wall.” At least three patients were sent to the hospital.
One man was pinned underneath the car and had to be rescued by Charlotte Fire crews.
