NEW YORK CITY, NY – A U-Haul moving truck driving suspect reportedly went on a “rampage” in New York City on Monday morning, running over multiple pedestrians in what police have confirmed was “not an accident.”
The incident took place in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, authorities say, and so far there are three injured pedestrians, although their exact conditions – as well as the motivations of the suspect – are currently unknown, according to city Councilman Justin Brannan.
“Several people were hit and badly injured,” he said. “We have no idea of motives at this time, but this wasn’t an accident.”
Monday morning, the suspect driving the U-Haul truck left the roadway in Bay Ridge and entered the sidewalk, hitting and injuring several people; he then fled the scene with police in pursuit and officers eventually stopping the vehicle near the entrance to a tunnel leading from Brooklyn to Manhattan.

At that point, the suspect exited the truck and attempted to flee on foot, although police announced that they apprehended him shortly afterwards in nearby Sunset Park.
Officials have also stated they were currently searching the suspect’s truck for potential explosive devices.
The incident draws bizarre and ironic parallels with the case of Sayfullo Saipov, an Islamic extremist who is currently on trial – and is facing the death penalty – after driving a truck down a New York bike path along the West Side Highway on Halloween in 2017, leaving eight people dead.
It is currently unknown if the two incidents are related in any way.
Councilman Brannan expressed his appreciation for the response of the New York Police Department’s 72nd and 68th precincts, and said more information would be released as soon as it is obtained.
