A auto jumped the curb and struck three pedestrians on a sidewalk in Lower Manhattan Thursday afternoon, police said.

The five victims are not believed to have life threatening injuries.

Further details were not immediately available.

Mark Fields, Ford's CEO at the time, referred to the plans for the MI plant as a "vote of confidence" in the Trump administration. Sending the electric vehicle to Mexico, where labor costs are lower, will help the business case for the costly model.

It then hit another vehicle and veered onto the pavement, knocking down pedestrians.

The auto kept going, crushing the back of a third vehicle before coming to a stop. Authorities were working to determine whether the crash was intentional.

The driver of the Lincoln Town Car is being questioned as to why he continued after the first collision.
