Three pedestrians were struck during a crash in lower Manhattan Thursday afternoon, a few blocks away from One World Trade Center, according to police.

It happened at about 1:20 p.m. near the intersection near Liberty and Broadway. A bicyclist was also injured. Police said all of their injuries appear to be non-life threatening. Authorities were working to determine whether the crash was intentional.

Police do not suspect terrorism however and believe road rage played a role in the incident.

Video of the scene showed a black vehicle with NY license plates having sustained heavy front-end damage. The driver of the Lincoln was taken into custody by responding officers. Police identified the driver as Sayfullo Saipov, 29, and deemed that attack an act of terror.
