NEW YORK (AP) – Authorities say a fiery, four-car crash in lower Manhattan killed one person and injured others.

A driver is in custody after allegedly trying to run from the scene.

The crash happened Saturday morning about a block from the World Trade Center.

Police say a 37-year-old man lost control of his Audi while driving northbound and fast on West Street, a major roadway along the Hudson River.

The Audi hit a Honda, which flipped over and caught fire. Its driver, a woman, was killed.

Police say the Audi then hit two other cars. The driver and two other people were injured and taken to hospitals.

According to police, the Audi driver tried to flee with his dog, a Rottweiler. The man is in custody.

The dog is with animal control authorities.
