Medical issue investigated in fatal Halloween crash

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Investigators are trying to determine whether a medical problem caused a car to plow into a group of trick-or-treaters in New York City, killing three people, including a 10-year-old girl and her grandfather.

Four other people including the driver were injured Saturday evening when the Dodge Charger driven by a 52-year-old man jumped the curb and hit the group on a sidewalk in the Bronx.

Witnesses described a scene of carnage, and not knowing whether it was real or a series of gruesome Halloween props.

Police are examining whether the driver may have suffered a medical emergency, such as a seizure.

No charges have been filed.
