Saipov entered the United States in 2010, and has lived in Ohio, Florida, and New Jersey, law enforcement officials told ABC News. He is married and has three children, and was the registered statutory agent for two trucking companies in Ohio, ABC News reports. Saipov allegedly drove a rented truck down a bike path Tuesday afternoon, killing eight people and injuring more than a dozen others.
