8 dead after truck plows into people in New York City

In what New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called a “cowardly act of terror,” a man driving a rental truck struck and killed eight people on a jogging and bike path Tuesday afternoon.

The sprawling crime scene runs about 10 blocks along the West Side Highway, a few blocks away from One World Trade Center. Witnesses described the chaos at the scene. “Everybody started running,” one said.
