Man hunted after auto ploughs into pedestrians in NY

At least one person has been killed and three others critically injured after being struck by a auto in Queens, New York City, early morning Sunday, AP reports citing police. One person was killed, and five others injured, one of them critically.

The driver plowed his vehicle into at least six people about 4:30 a.m.in the Richmond Hill neighborhood in Queens, according to the New York Police Department.

The crash occurred just as officers were responding to a fight outside a nearby hookah bar, police said.

Police said they later arrested the person they believe to be the driver, who fled the scene, and recovered the vehicle in another part of Queens.

One of the injured is in critical condition and four others are stable, authorities said.

The stabbing victims were in stable condition.

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.

Police still were sorting out the details, but said there was a dispute before a man drove into the people.

Police did not immediately provide a description of the driver that fled.
