Hit-and-run driver rams into crowd on sidewalk

Hit-and-run driver rams into crowd on sidewalk

During the dispute, the driver got out of a white Hyundai Sonata and stabbed two people in the torso, the New York Police Department said in a statement.

Police officers responded after being notified of an assault outside XS NYC, a hookah lounge in South Ozone Park, Queens, about 4:30 a.m.

One of the injured is in critical condition and four others are stable, authorities said. A vehicle then slammed into a group of six people, killing one of them.

Queens resident Milagros Urbina told CBS New York that she heard some screaming before she saw the vehicle barreling down the sidewalk. As several people were trying to stop the fight, a auto came rushing down the sidewalk, plowed into the group and kept going. All were taken to Jamaica Hospital. The pair were recovering and in stable condition.

Police are now looking into the details, but so far the incident is not believed to be terrorism related, according to AP.

Police say the driver then got back into his vehicle, drove off, jumped a curb and hit a group of pedestrians.
