A driver attempting to park a minivan in Manhattan’s busy Chinatown went over a curb and onto a sidewalk earlier this week, killing a 56-year-old man and injuring six others, according to law enforcement. At least two of the injured victims were in critical condition while two others had injuries that were severe but not life threatening. Unconfirmed reports suggested that the wreck was unintentional as the driver was trying to parallel park but hit the wrong pedal. The driver of the vehicle, who is 70 years of age, stayed at the scene of the accident. He also suffered injuries but refused medical attention.
