Before the singing of the National Anthem and the first pitch of the highly-anticpated game 6 of the World Series, the Houston Astros, Los Angeles Dodgers and the crowd in Dodger Stadium honored the victims of today’s truck attack in Manhattan with a moment of silence.
The tragic incident happened today in Lower Manhattan where a rented truck drove down a major bike path for about 20 blocks and struck several people. The story is still developing, but as of now, a 29-year-old man is in custody as a result of the attack.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said, “Based on the information we have at this moment, this is was an act of terror — and a particularly coward act of terror.”
Officials said some of the injured are in critical condition, but none has life-threatening injuries.
