Driver strikes onlooker while doing donuts, NY cops say


A 23-year-old man fractured his skull after he was struck by a driver doing donuts in a New York City street.

A video released by the New York City Police Department shows a red two-door Infiniti sedan doing donuts on a street in Manhattan on March 19.

A large crowd of people are seen surrounding the vehicle as it spins, the video shows.

One person in a blue sweatshirt is seen closely filming the car as it does donuts, the video shows.

Then the 23-year-old in red falls in front of the moving car and was run over, police said. Police said his skull was fractured and he suffered a brain injury and “severe trauma to the body.”

He was taken to the hospital in critical condition, police said.

The driver fled the scene after the incident, police said.
