A minivan driver allegedly struck a group of pedestrians Monday evening in Manhattan’s Chinatown, killing Queens resident Chun Deng Zhang and injuring six others, reports NBC New York.
The NYPD said that 70-year-old driver Henry Herman lost control while trying to park near Canal and Forsyth Street, causing the minivan to jump the busy sidewalk. While in reverse, the car smashed two fruit carts and struck several victims, reports The New York Times.
Two were critically injured and four others had non-life threatening injuries. According to police, Herman and a passenger were among the injured but refused medical attention.
