The driver of a truck which mowed down innocent people in New York on Tuesday, killing eight and injuring at least 13, pledged his allegiance to ISIS before the attack.

Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, remains in custody in the hospital after being shot in the stomach by an on-duty NYPD officer at Chambers Street in Tribeca on Tuesday afternoon.

He was brought down after reigning terror for 17 blocks on the West Side Highway which he drove down in a rented Home Depot truck before crashing into a school bus.

After his vehicle came to a stop, he was seen running from the scene brandishing a pellet gun and paint gun before being brought down.

Investigators who searched the truck afterwards found notes in which the 29-year-old Uzbek pledged his allegiance to the terror group.

One, reportedly written in English, said ‘ISIS lives forever’. Others in Arabic made similar pledges and remarks, it was claimed. There were also ISIS flags inside the truck.

Saipov immigrated to the US in 2010 and had addresses in Florida, Ohio and New Jersey. He ran his own truck sharing companies in the past but had spent the last six months working as an Uber driver.

The ride-sharing app is now cooperating with authorities as is Home Depot in Passaic, New Jersey, where he is believed to have rented the truck used in the attack.

The FBI is appealing for witnesses to send photographs and videos they captured of the attack to them in order to aid investigations.
