Police say a man angry about a parking dispute stabbed two people and then drove into a group of people on a New York City sidewalk, leaving one person dead and several others injured, one critically.

Witnesses said a group of people left a bar in Richmond Hill just before 4:30 a.m. when they spotted a man beating up another man on a sidewalk.

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

"The girl is yelling 'Stop, stop". Apart from the one person killed immediately and the one in critical condition at a hospital, the other four are in stable condition. "The bodies went flying".

Worringly, Davis was unable to put any weight on his leg, and had to be taken to the locker room in a wheelchair. As it turns out, the injury will hold him out for longer than just part of Friday's game.

Another witness saw the driver slam into a parked vehicle before careening toward the victims.

"I saw a couple of kids, just fighting", neighbor Milagros Urbina said. They were all screaming, it was insane. "The auto was going really fast, at least 50 miles per hour on the sidewalk", he told the outlet.

Police were searching for the driver, The Associated Press reported.

Police said two other people were stabbed during the fight and are at the hospital. The third was hospitalized in stable condition.
