U-Haul truck kills one person, injures 7 others in NYC
A U-Haul truck has killed one person, injures seven others in New York City .
According to a video on Tuesday February 14, 2023, the U-Haul truck swerved onto sidewalks and plowed into scooter riders in New York City.
One person died and seven others injured before police were able to pin the careening vehicle against a building following a mileslong pursuit through Brooklyn, the report says.
A 44-year-old man was pronounced dead hours after he was struck and critically injured, according to a law enforcement official.
The officials could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
It was reported that the driver was arrested and taken to a police station.
His son identified him as Weng Sor, 62, a troubled man with a history of harmful behavior and stints behind bars.
The mayhem unfolded over a harrowing hour as the truck tore through Brooklyn’s bustling Bay Ridge neighborhood, hitting people at several points along the way before veering on and off a highway as police gave chase.
Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell described it as a “violent rampage,” but said there was no evidence of “terrorism involvement.”
