NEW YORK — Several people were injured Tuesday afternoon when a car struck them after a teenager was stabbed outside a Bronx school, authorities said.

The FDNY said it happened around 2:30 p.m., around dismissal time, outside Harry S. Truman High School.

According to preliminary information from the NYPD, it is believed that a 17-year-old — who does not go to the school — was with a group of men inside a BMW in front of the school when a fight broke out and the teenager was stabbed in the torso. The teen fled into nearby P.S. 178 for safety.

According to the city police department, multiple people surrounded the BMW and attacked it, but the BMW driver hit the gas and struck them. The car ended up hopping the divider on Baychester Avenue and crashing into a red Chrysler PT Cruiser, footage of which NY1 obtained. The BMW driver then got out of the car and fled the scene.

Seven to eight people went to local hospitals, according to the NYPD, and the 17-year-old was transported to Jacobi Medical Center. None of the injuries were life threatening.

An investigation is ongoing. No arrests have been made, and police were searching for the BMW driver, whose identity is not known at this time.

The area can be bustling at dismissal time, with several schools nearby.

“It’s a high school, so there’s a lot of people that go there. It’s like from 9th to 12th,” said Terrel Rucker, an after-school counselor at nearby P.S. 153. “It gets busy, but I’m surprised. That doesn’t usually happen.”

“It’s dangerous,” Rucker continued. “You got the young kids, you don’t want to see nothing happen to them.”
