NEW YORK (AP) – Authorities say a man driving a U-Haul truck struck and injured several pedestrians in New York City before police were able to pin the careening vehicle against a building following a mileslong pursuit through Brooklyn.
The city’s fire department said at least four people were hurt at two locations on Monday.
The severity of their injuries wasn’t immediately clear.
The truck sped through the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn before police stopped it more than 3 miles away near the entrance to a tunnel leading from Brooklyn to Manhattan.
