Crazed U-Hual Driver Plows into People Along NY Streets and Sidewalks Leaving 1 Dead and Several Injured

On Monday morning, a man driving a U-Haul truck went on a rampage in Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge area, leaving one person dead and nine others injured, including a police officer.

The suspect, 62-year-old Weng Sor, was eventually apprehended in the Sunset Park area. According to the New York City Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell, there is no evidence indicating terrorism was involved in the incident. However, the NYPD and its partners are conducting further investigations.

Sor has admitted to striking some people with his truck and made statements, after waiving his Miranda rights, about wanting the police to shoot him. According to the NY Post, he yelled, “Shoot me! I’m not stopping!”

Charges are pending against him as he is known by police for having a prior EDP (emotionally disturbed person) incident in 2019.

At 10:50 AM, police responded to reports of a male driving a U-Haul truck and hitting several individuals. The vehicle was eventually stopped near the Battery Tunnel entrance by highway patrol officers. The NYPD bomb squad checked the truck for explosives, and seven locations are being investigated.

According to ABC 7, the truck was rented from a facility in West Palm Beach, Florida, on February 1, with a return date of March 3. Following the incident, Mayor Eric Adams and Governor Kathy Hochul were briefed, and the NYC Mayor’s Office has confirmed that there are no additional credible threats at this time.
