Conflicting radio reports. Apparently crash involved some
bicycles, a school bus, a delivery truck, a firearm and
fatal police shot(s).

The killer's name is Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov. He deliberately targeted cyclists on a cycle path. Bystanders reported hearing him shout "Allahu Akbar". Clear sequence reported he

It turned out that my post highlighted the same incident as yours,
above, Apparently when the bearded driver got out of the truck he said
"Allahu akbar".

The Bangkok Post has it that "The attacker was taken into custody
after he was shot in the stomach by a New York City policeman, and
neutralised".

Oddly, I first read about this incident in the London Telegraph --
rather high on the page.

Exactly what the murderer thought he was doing isn't particularly
important.

Everybody hates bicycles, it is one of the few things that unites the
world. Oh, sure, people *say* they like bikes... until said bike is
being ridden on a road and holds them up for 3.1 seconds.

Making light of a tragedy I should not be taken as. That's not the
intent. It was a horrific incident. At this point we don't really know
if he is a terrorist or a nut, but that doesn't make the slightest
different to the victims and their families. Deep condolences to the
loved ones of the victims and best wishes for the best possible recovery
for the injured.

There are too many ways in the world to get hurt or killed without
people doing it deliberately.

On one hand I agree, it's not particularly important what he thought he
was doing. But on the other hand, this attack isn't exactly an isolated
incident.
