Vehicles have crashed into temporary outdoor dining areas on New York City streets at least four times since the program that allows restaurants to serve meals amid the coronavirus pandemic began roughly six weeks ago.

New York Police Department officials said that eight people were injured in the accidents that occurred in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Manhattan at street-dining areas that were permitted by the city for the first time, as officials began to ease restrictions imposed to control the spread of Covid-19.
