Several pedestrians and bicyclists were run down by a rental truck in Lower Manhattan Tuesday—eight people are dead and a dozen more were wounded in the terror attack.
The vehicle – a pick-up truck – drove down the bike path on the West Side Highway near Vesey Street on Tuesday afternoon 3:20PM.
From photos emerging from the scene, it appears that the truck slammed into multiple vehicles and was brought into a stop.
The suspect has been identified as 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipovm, of Tampa, Florida. According to NBC, Saipovm is an Uzbek national who came to America in 2010.
