A victim of the Brooklyn U-Haul rampage succumbs to injuries

According to law enforcement officials, one of the victims mowed down in Brooklyn on Monday by a crazy guy driving a U-Haul truck has died.

The victim, a 44-year-old man riding an e-bike, succumbed to his injuries hours after the Bay Ridge attack that left at least seven people wounded, according to reports.

The e-bike rider was initially hospitalized in severe condition after being struck by the truck at Bay Ridge Parkway and Fifth Avenue.

The alleged driver of the vehicle, identified by senior law enforcement sources as a 62-year-old homeless man named Weng Sor, was arrested after leading police on a 30-minute high-speed chase through streets and sidewalks.

According to accounts, he dared officers to shoot him and indicated he wanted to die once he was apprehended.

Monday night, Sor remained in the 68th Precinct and had not been charged.

The suspect has a history of mental illness, including an incident in 2019 where he was ranting and jumping into moving traffic on a Queens street, according to sources.

According to accounts, he was brought to a local hospital for psychiatric evaluation at the time.

Other victims caught in Monday’s catastrophic path include a 36-year-old pedestrian listed in serious condition and struggling for his life at NYU Langone Hospital, according to police. Other victims were listed in stable condition, according to police and sources.
