Can anyone give a clarification on the car's direction of travel?  All reports confirm that the car got stopped at 7th Ave & 45th street by a security Stanton. 

But several reports I've read say the car made a turn from 42st on to 7th avenue (this would have the car going north.  But other reports have the car traveling south on 7th Ave.

This is based on an NYPD press conference that I heard this afternoon.

The vehicle was southbound on Seventh Avenue.  At 42 Street, the driver made a U-Turn from the street (Seventh Avenue) onto the northwest corner of the intersection, mounted the sidewalk and drove on the sidewalk to 45 Street.

I heard that around 1:30 PM, so things have probably been up-dated or revised since.  Never take initial reports as fully accurate.

You sure R1 gave the verbal?? From the audio it sounds like a BC. Rescue had asked for their runs over the air as they would be away from the rig

4 truck was actually on a stuck elevator. When this happened.  Should've mentioned that would've been the rundown of all in quarters

Excellent - I would be great if you could get yourself some sort of credentials that would permit beyond the police lines.

Dont think any credentials (apart from being PD, FD or EMS) would get you beyond any Police Lines for this type of incident
