Cops have said the auto was involved in at least two crashes before coming to a stop near Liberty Street and Broadway.

"The area of Broadway & Liberty is completely safe", the NYPD's Mark Iocco tweeted.

Video of the scene showed a black auto with NY license plates having sustained heavy front-end damage.
