1 killed, several injured after driver plows through group outside bar in New York
The scene outside a bar in Queens turned deadly after police say a driver barreled through a group of people early Sunday morning, killing at least one of them before fleeing the scene, CBS News reported.
Witnesses said a group of people left a bar in Richmond Hill just before 4:30 a.m. when they spotted a man beating up another man on a sidewalk. Several people were yelling at the man to stop when witnesses say a car came barreling down the sidewalk and crashed into them before taking off.
"I saw a couple of kids, just fighting," neighbor Milagros Urbina said. "Suddenly I just see the white car driving through the sidewalk. They were screaming, it was crazy. There was screaming before the car started driving, by the sidewalk."
Police said the driver struck at least six people, one of whom was pronounced dead at the scene. The remaining five were rushed to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center where one was listed in critical condition early Sunday.
Two people were also stabbed in the preceding scuffle, according to police. They were also taken to Jamaica hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
A New York Police Department detective said terrorism is not suspected, The Associated Press reported.
