It happened at about 10 p.m. Wednesday on West 34th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues.

Authorities say the 34-year-old female driver and her male passenger were among the injured. All seven were hospitalized with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the driver is in custody. She's being investigated for possible drunken driving.

They say she was traveling eastbound on 34th Street when she rear-ended a vehicle. She then backed up, entered the westbound lanes heading the wrong way and struck another vehicle. Police say the car then mounted the sidewalk, hitting the pedestrians.
