New York police on Thursday said an out-of-control car slammed into a building where Orthodox Jewish families were celebrating Hanukkah, injuring 14 people. At least six of the injured were young children and two of them were seriously injured, hospital officials said. Nassau County police Officer Patricia Tanksley said the 76-year-old driver lost control of his car Thursday afternoon and slammed it through a plateglass window of the suburban Long Island building. About 150 people were inside the Woodmere building, celebrating an all-day event billed as Chanukah Wonderland for the Chabad Orthodox Jewish movement. A Chabad Web site advertised a funhouse and other events geared for children.
