Joe Torres reports from Chinatown

CHINATOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- A man is in custody, suspected of driving under the influence, after he was involved in a wild crash while coming off of the Manhattan Bridge.

It happened just after 9 p.m. Wednesday on Canal and Bowery streets in Chinatown.

The driver was coming from Brooklyn into Lower Manhattan and instead of turning, crashed right into the median and then flew into trees, a street sign, parked cars, and ended up slamming into a NYPD Auxiliary police car right outside the 5th Precinct.

The driver and another person suffered injuries.

He was taken into police custody on suspicion of DWI.
