NYPD: Driver kills man, hits 7 cars in Bronx
(AP) - Police say a man walking his young son across a street was mowed down and killed by a driver who bashed into seven cars as he tore through a Bronx neighborhood.
The driver is in police custody after the string of crashes Sunday on Gun Hill Road.
Police say the driver got into an argument in a restaurant parking lot and drove off shortly before 4 p.m., hitting a parked car and pushing it into another parked vehicle.
Police say the driver slammed into the 36-year-old man as he walked with his boy about a half-mile away. The father died at the scene. The 6-year-old child wasn't hurt.
Police say the driver kept going, hitting six more cars before his mangled car came to a stop.
