5 killed in New York after vehicle crashes into car full of teenagers while evading police

Police initially tried to pull over a white Infiniti sedan at about 9:23 p.m. that was driving in an “erratic manner” when the driver sped off, Yonkers police said Wednesday. The department said that though officers "disengaged and did not pursue" the driver, the car continued to accelerate at “beyond reckless speeds.”

As officers followed, the Infiniti slammed into the car with the four 18-year-olds, a 2006 Nissan that was making a right turn onto Riverdale Avenue from Culver Street, causing “catastrophic damage to both vehicles,” Spano and Mueller said.
