The trio was hit at around 1:20 p.m.at Broadway and Liberty Street.

Ioc said the Lincoln's driver "did not seem to be in any medical distress" when officers found him and the heavily damaged auto.

Police said the area is safe but to avoid it because of the ongoing collision investigation and traffic congestion. Authorities were working to determine whether the crash was intentional.
