Hit-and-run driver rams into crowd on sidewalk

Police remove the body of a man following an incident in the Queens borough of New York

A driver plowed a auto into half a dozen people during a fight over a parking spot outside a hookah bar in the New York City borough of Queens in the early hours of Sunday morning, killing one and injuring the others before fleeing, police said.

The crash occurred just as officers were responding to a fight outside a nearby hookah bar, police said.

Police said two people got into a fight and stabbed each other before the deadly hit-and-run.

Another witness saw the driver slam into a parked vehicle before careening toward the victims. "The auto was going really fast, at least 50 miles per hour on the sidewalk". They were also taken to Jamaica hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police said that they have no information about what prompted the scuffle but that investigations of the two incidents are ongoing. Four others who were struck are in critical condition. The names and ages of the people struck were not immediately available. A search was underway for a white sedan.

On Halloween, Sayfullo Saipov careened into a crowd of pedestrians in Lower Manhattan, killing eight people in what police said was a terror-related attack.
