New York -  Investigators are looking into whether a medical condition may have caused a motorist to smash into a group of New York City trick-or-treaters, killing three people including a 10-year-old girl.


The car jumped a curb in the Bronx leaving behind mangled bodies and bloodied costumes. Police are examining whether a medical problem such as a seizure may have been involved.

A 65-year-old grandfather was killed, along with his 10-year-old granddaughter. A 3-year-old girl with them was injured. Another 24-year-old man was also killed, and a 21-year-old woman and 9-year-old girl with him were injured.

The 52-year-old driver was taken to a hospital in stable condition. Police say he struck the pedestrians and then went through a fence in front of a home.
