1 dead, 5 hurt after auto plows into pedestrians in Queens

The driver's vehicle then allegedly hopped the curb half a block away, striking six people while the auto was moving on the sidewalk. He was then taken into custody after he was identified.

Commanding Officer of Patrol Borough Queens South, Assistant Chief David Barrere, told reporters the driver of a white Honda sedan that mowed down a group of people outside a hookah lounge was in police custody. One of the wounded remained in critical condition, the police said.

According to police, the whole incident was triggered by a parking dispute in front of the XX Hookah Lounge.

The dispute escalated when Harry got out of his vehicle and stabbed both the men in their torsos, Assistant Chief David Barrere said during a news conference Sunday morning.




'The bodies went flying.

"This white auto just hopped on the sidewalk and just drove straight into, like, the whole crowd". "Suddenly I just see the white vehicle driving through the sidewalk".

An eyewitness said that he drove by the fracas as it erupted and saw a woman trying to hold back one of the brawlers involved in the fight.

"They were screaming", said witness Millie Urbina. On Oct. 31, an Uzbekistan national in a rented pickup plowed through a busy bicycle path near the World Trade Center memorial in Lower Manhattan, killing eight people and wounding a dozen more. "We will respond as we always do". The other people struck and the two people stabbed were in stable condition. Police claimed Richard Rojas told investigators he had been smoking marijuana and PCP before the crash, and de Blasio said that crash was not a terror strike.
