1 dead, 7 hurt after auto crashes into crowd in NYC

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.

Officers became involved when responding to a 911 call in Queens of an assault in progress at 4:30 a.m., police said on Twitter.

"I saw a couple of kids, just fighting", said Milagros Urbina, who lives near the scene. One person was killed, and five others injured, one of them critically. "The vehicle was going really fast, at least 50 miles per hour on the sidewalk", he told the outlet.

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. They were screaming, it was insane.

Two people were also stabbed in the preceding scuffle, according to police. The third was hospitalized in stable condition.
