Four were injured and one person died after a driver fled a police stop and crashed into pedestrians on Saturday in Brooklyn.

The incident took place around 7:10 p.m. in Bedford-Stuyvesant, when officers pulled over a car with mismatched plates and two people who were smoking marijuana, according to the New York Police Department.

The vehicle hit a bicyclist and two pedestrians.

The car kept going and struck another pedestrian and a vehicle a block away. The two individuals who had fled got out of the car and ran on foot.

One person who was killed was a grandmother.

Four others were hospitalized on Saturday.

One person was in custody and was being interrogated.

“We will catch the people responsible,” said New York City Mayor Eric Adams said.
