Four people suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries after they were struck by a vehicle that went onto the sidewalk following a two-vehicle collision in D.C. on Tuesday.

The incident occurred in the area of 9th Street, K Street and New York Avenue in Northwest around 2:30 p.m., police said. A pickup truck and a sedan were driving south when the truck's driver apparently turned too wide and struck the other sedan, resulting in the latter vehicle being pushed onto the sidewalk and into the pedestrians.

The four people struck were transported to area hospitals, DC Fire and EMS said. According to D.C. police, all four victims were conscious and breathing.

Both drivers remained on the scene following the crash. No occupants in the vehicles were injured.

Police said the incident was an "accident" and had "no nexus to terrorism."

It was not immediately known how fast the vehicles were going at the time of the crash.

Ephrem Engdashet, a taxi driver who was parked outside a hotel during the collision, caught the entire incident on camera.

Following the crash, bystanders rushed in to help the victims. Two were trapped under the car. Watch below:
