NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say a 37-year-old Maryland man faces manslaughter charges after a fiery, multi-car crash in lower Manhattan killed one person and injured others.
The crash happened Saturday morning a block from the World Trade Center. Police say Sherman Harrison of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, lost control of his Audi on West Street, a major roadway along the Hudson River.
The Audi hit a Honda, which flipped over and caught fire. Its driver, a woman, was killed.
Police say the Audi hit two other vehicles, injuring two people, before striking two unoccupied parked cars.
