NEW YORK (AP) — A Brooklyn man is facing multiple charges including criminally negligent homicide in connection with a crash that killed a 9-year-old boy and injured two others.
Police arrested Anthony Byrd, 59, of Brooklyn. He also faces counts including assault, reckless driving, and criminal mischief.
Authorities say Byrd was making a turn onto a Brooklyn street just before 1 p.m. Saturday when he attempted to avoid two pedestrians in the crosswalk and hit a car. Police said he continued to hit other cars and some pedestrians.
One of those hit was a 9-year-old boy, who was hit on the sidewalk. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Byrd was in custody. A man who answered a call to a telephone number listed for him said he didn't know much about the situation.
