New York police are looking for a driver who fled after striking several people, killing one and seriously injuring another, on Sunday morning.
The driver plowed his car into at least six people about 4:30 a.m. in the Richmond Hill neighborhood in Queens, according to the New York Police Department. Apart from the one person killed immediately and the one in critical condition at a hospital, the other four are in stable condition.
The crash occurred just as officers were responding to a fight outside a nearby hookah bar, police said.
Witnesses told CBS New York that a group of people were leaving the bar when they saw one man beating up another on the sidewalk. As several people were trying to stop the fight, a car came rushing down the sidewalk, plowed into the group and kept going.
