    NEW YORK (AP) — A car rocketing down an avenue in Manhattan's dense East Village swerved out of control, plowed down a sidewalk and smashed through a storefront flower stand Wednesday morning, injuring eight people, witnesses and officials said.

    A 60-year-old grocery store worker was critically hurt in the 6:30 a.m. crash, which left half a city block in shambles.

    Police arrested the driver, Shaun Martin, who they said was driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs.

    Investigators were still trying to determine how fast the car was moving, but one witness who saw the wreck unfold said he saw two vehicles racing down Second Avenue at a frightening speed.

    A maniac driver who floored his car on Second Ave. while high on PCP and methamphetamine — killing an immigrant florist and injuring others — gave them little chance to get out of the way, prosecutors said Friday.

    Martin is on trial for murder in the death of 62-year-old Mohammed Akkas Ali, 62, who was getting off his shift at the East Village Farm and Grocery Store.

    A doped-up driver who plowed into an East Village deli, killing one man and injuring three others, blubbered like a baby Wednesday as a judge pronounced him “guilty”...

    Martin is due back in court Sept. 21 for sentencing.
