Three people were injured after a driver crashed into an outdoor dining space on the Upper East Side on Monday night. Police say the incident happened around 9:30 p.m. yesterday outside Delizia 92 on the southeast corner of E 92nd Street and 2nd Avenue.
A driver in a Cadillac Escalade SUV heading east on the street collided with a southbound Audi SUV in the intersection. The Audi then careened into the restaurant’s wooden outdoor dining setup, damaging a barrier and several canopy tents.
There have been a number of incidents involving drivers smashing into outdoor seating areas throughout the city since the Outdoor Restaurants program started this summer. That includes an incident last month in which three people were injured when a truck driver ran into outdoor dining seating for L’Wren bar in Sunset Park.
