CORONA, Queens (WABC) -- A New York State assemblyman is recovering after a stolen car caused quite a scare at an event he was attending in Queens on Thursday.
Assemblyman Jeffrion Aubry had just spoken at the ribbon cutting for the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Corona when a stolen silver Hyundai slammed into barricades.
Witnesses say the driver then ran from the car and knocked over the 75-year-old assemblyman.
He was rushed to the hospital in unknown condition.
Police arrested the driver at the scene. Charges against him are pending.
In a tweet on Thursday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul wished Aubry a speedy recovery.
