Preliminary reports suggest that a driver in an Audi sedan leaving a gas station struck the rear of a Toyota RAV4 that was operating as an Uber at the time. This caused the 31-year-old male driver of the RAV4 to lose control of the car, mount the curb and crash into the Inwood Bar & Grill, police said.

It was not immediately clear if there were passengers in Toyota RAV4, and Uber did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Nineteen people, including the driver of the RAV4, were taken to area hospitals while the others refused medical care. All had non-life-threatening injuries, according to officials.

The driver of the Audi fled the scene. No arrests have been made as of Tuesday morning.
