Violence has struck the streets of Brooklyn recently as police reports confirmed a massive vehicle plowing into a giant crowd of pedestrians on Saturday evening.
According to officials at the NYPD, one of the victims included a 67-year-old grandmother who reportedly passed away at the scene of the horrifying crime. Meanwhile, her 8-year-old grandson is stated to be admitted to a local nearby hospital and is currently fighting for his life.
Two other victims are said to have suffered from serious injuries while another one was said to have minor injuries.
Sources revealed how the massive vehicle managed to ram into the giant crowd, at about 7 pm at Brooklyn’s Macon Street.
Moments before the crash, the vehicle was said to have been involved in a police chase and was trying to get away. But then all of a sudden, the driver appeared to have lost control and rammed into a crowd while making attempts to pull over.
The officials didn’t release too many details about the crime but it appears to be a case involving a car with mismatched license plates.
For now, one person is believed to be in police custody, moments after the crash had taken place. On the other hand, another person is said to have fled from the scene of the crime and therefore is being hunted down by the cops.
Tragically, the grandmother was pronounced dead on the scene of the crime.
Witnesses described the horror scenes as ones that were from a movie. They claim the driver was racing ahead with his vehicle and then rammed into a bus stop, right before he slammed into the group of pedestrians.
“Our officers exited the vehicle and walked towards that vehicle on foot. And then that car managed to escape at an extremely fast speed rate”- the Assistant Chief for the NYPD revealed.
The city’s mayor was seen delivering a late-night police conference after the incident, where he blamed the state’s current bail reform for the accident.
