The driver who allegedly plowed onto an East Village sidewalk last summer is now facing murder charges.

Shaun Martin, 33, already faced a host of charges, including Vehicular Assault and Driving While Intoxicated.

Prosecutors say he was high on methamphetamine and PCP when his car jumped a curb and struck a flower stand and deli, seriously injuring two workers.

Officials say one of those workers died because of his injuries, leading to the new murder charge.
