The driver of the Mercedes was taken to Maimonides Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

Five people were evacuated from the second floor of the building with an FDNY bucket ladder after rubble barricaded the stairwell. FDNY Collapse and Rescue units responded to stabilize the building.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
