Eight people were hurt when a taxi plowed into a restaurant in Manhattan Thursday afternoon, fire officials say.
Five of the victims were taken to hospitals following the 12:35 p.m. crash at Medi Wine Bar on Ninth Avenue, which left the sidewalk littered with debris — including what appeared to be at least part of the taxi cab, the front bumper, itself.
