A look at attacks where vehicles have been used as weapons
STOCKHOLM (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says a man in a rented pickup who mowed down pedestrians and bicyclists along a bike path near the World Trade Center memorial Tuesday was a "lone wolf." The attack killed at least eight and injured 11 others. Police shot the 29-year-old driver and took him into custody after he jumped out of the truck with what turned out to be a fake gun in each hand. It's the latest in a string of incidents where drivers have used their vehicles as weapons. Some were orchestrated by extremist groups, others by unstable individuals with unclear motives. Radical groups have urged supporters to use any weapons at hand, including cars, a tactic that presents a major challenge for security forces around the world. Here's a look at some other attacks:
‘Horror’: 1 student from mangled bus hospitalized, 1 OK
NEW YORK (AP) — The photos and video of a mangled yellow school bus are among the most horrifying images from a deadly truck attack on a bike path near the World Trade Center.
The bus was parked in front of Public School 89 when the attacker's truck crashed into it on Tuesday, leaving the right side caved in.
A passer-by who shot video that's been posted on social media shouts, "Oh, my God! Oh, my God. Horror." The video shows firefighters rescuing youngsters from the crumpled bus.
Renting a truck is easy, and tough for authorities to stop
ATLANTA (AP) — It doesn't take a firearm or a bomb to wreak havoc. All it takes is a driver's license, a valid credit card, some proof of insurance — and as little as $19.
The attack on a riverfront bike path in New York City was carried out with a pickup truck that home contractors or do-it-yourself handymen can get with no background check and little worry it will raise red flags among law enforcement.
