Six people have been hospitalized after a driver plowed a jeep into a family on a New York City sidewalk, critically injuring one of them, in what the victims believe was a targeted attack, cops said.

The Jeep, which has temporary paper license plates, finally stopped when it slammed into a tall chain-link fence, ripping through part of it, surrounding the park.

After relatives tried to detain the driver, someone fired a gun into the air to scare them off, police said.

Surveillance video captured the moments right after the crash. People are seen running after the Jeep mounts a sidewalk and strikes several members of the same family, pinning two of them under the vehicle in the process.
