Paramedic rapid response teams raced to the scene from their Broadway base to Apollo Road, off the Boucher Road.
The 999 alarm was raised around 8.30 pm.
One person has been very seriously injured.
A friend of one those injured told Derry Daily: “My son has a broken leg, he has some facial injuries and has lost a lot of teeth.
“He says the car came out of nowhere and hit them.”
An NIAS spokesman said the five other people have sustained a combination of fractures and facial injuries.
The car is still at the scene.
Police have sealed off the scene for a forensic examination.Tags:
