New York, NY
An out-of-control Corvette with nobody behind the wheel crashed onto a midtown sidewalk Thursday afternoon and pinned a woman underneath after its automatic starter malfunctioned. According to the Post, the car had been pulled up to the lip of a parking garage on East 56th Street near Madison Avenue when the owner hit the automatic-start button on his key ring. But, according to the paper, instead of just starting and idling, the car jumped forward, across traffic, and hit a woman across the street. Good Samaritans who'd been in line at a nearby Chop't rolled the car off of her. Photos from the scene show that the car jumped the curb but was stopped just short of crashing into the salad shop.
