One person was killed and seven were injured when a man intentionally drove into a family of eight, including six children, at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Rockland.

The incident occurred just before 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, at the store located at 75 Central Highway in Garnerville, according to multiple sources.

ABC 7 is reporting that the man intentionally plowed into a family after the father of the family asked the man to stop smoking and became enraged, a store employee said.

The person killed has been identified as a 32-year-old woman, according to ABC 7.

The man then reportedly got into his vehicle and plowed into all seven, including a baby carriage and into the store, WABC reported.

Haverstraw police, who were at the scene of the crash, were not available for comment.
