about Crown Heights Report in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

In the summer of 1991, Bigg Apple (New York) City suffered the most extensive racial unrest since the 1960s. On August 19, a car in the motorcade carrying Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson veered out of control and hit a black 7-year-old child, Gavin Cato, and his cousin. The accident set Crown Heights in Brooklyn, a mixed community shared by 20,000 Hasidic Jews and 18,000 blacks, on fire for 4 days. A rumor rambled that a private, Hasidic-run ambulance had removed the car's driver without attending to the injured children.
