Bay Ridge Car Accident: Multiple people struck, injured by a U-Haul truck in Brooklyn.
In Brooklyn, a U-Haul truck hit and hurt several people right before the driver told police he wanted to die.
Police say that the suspect is a homeless 62-year-old man who may have been living in the U-Haul truck.
Before the police tried to stop him in Bay Ridge, he hit at least one person on foot. When police officers got close to the suspect, he told them to “shoot me, I’m not going to stop,” and that he “wanted to die.”
After that, he ran away and drove onto the sidewalk, hitting several people in less than half an hour on Monday morning.
Police say that at least eight people were hurt and that two of them were taken to a local hospital in critical condition.
