A man was arrested Friday for driving an SUV onto a sidewalk before getting the vehicle jammed inside a Washington Heights subway station entrance, cops said.
The man, driving a black Nissan Rogue, jumped the curb before driving on the sidewalk and ultimately getting the car wedged inside the narrow 1 train subway station entrance on 157th Street near Broadway, cops confirmed.
The “vehicle went onto the sidewalk and collided with the subway stairway entrance,” a police spokesman said.
The incident took place around 9:12 a.m. before the man was cuffed. He has not yet been charged.
There were no injuries.
The NYPD Emergency Services Unit was called in to help dislodge the car from the stairs.
A man posted a video of the car stuck in the entrance and first responders and ambulances close by.
Chains could be seen attached to the Nissan and connecting to another car that was presumably about to pull the SUV out.
“Holy smokes! Look at this!”
