March 11, 2013 By Christian Murray

A teenager is dead and four others were injured after a car jumped the curb and slammed into a number of pedestrians near LaGuardia Community College, according to police.

The incident occurred at around 10:30 a.m. near Thomson Avenue and 30th Street in Long Island City.

Witnesses said the crosswalk was filled with pedestrians when a 2002 Dodge Caravan driving east on Thompson tried to swerve to miss the crowd crossing the street. The van then jumped a curb near a bus stop and collided with several people on the sidewalk before hitting a tree.

The police said Drudak Tenzin, 16, died at the scene and four others were taken to Elmhurst General Hospital and have been listed in stable condition.
