NEW YORK A routine walk to school turned into a terrifying ordeal for a group of middle school students in New York City.

An out of control SUV jumped the curb and threw one of the girls into the air.

The other two ended up pinned under the vehicle. Witnesses rushed in and lifted the SUV off the girls.

Five people were injured in total.

The driver said he hit the gas instead of the brake when he tried to park.
