Car crash

A man plowed his auto into pedestrians in New York City's packed Times Square on Thursday, killing an 18-year-old woman and injuring 22 people.

New York Police Commissioner James O'Neill said preliminary information revealed that Rojas had been arrested in the past and two of those arrests were due to driving while intoxicated.

"It was somewhat of a knee-jerk reaction", Bradix told WNYW.

"He's been going through a real tough time", Ramos said.

"That goes to his state of mind", said William Aubry, assistant chief of the New York Police Department.

A smashed auto sits on the corner of Broadway and 45th Street in New York's Times Square after ploughing through a crowd of pedestrians at lunchtime on Thursday, May 18, 2017.

As he attempted to flee, police and several members of the public brought him down.

A Bronx man suspected in Thursday's deadly drive through Times Square was kicked out of the Navy three years ago and suffered from alcohol abuse and emotional problems, according to neighbors and military sources.

One picture showed what appeared to be the dead woman in the middle of a pedestrianised area with a broken off wing mirror lying next to her.

Police said four people are in a critical but non-life threatening condition, three are in a serious condition and 15 are less serious.

Less than an hour before being struck Alyssa had posted NY sightseeing videos to her Instagram account.

The driver, a 26-year-old American citizen named Richard Rojas, was taken into custody by the police.

NY mayor Bill de Blasio said the suspect is a former US Navy serviceman and a US citizen and there is no indication it is connected to terrorism.

"He has a criminal history", the mayor said.

Police records show that Rojas, who had served in the United States navy, had been arrested twice for drunken driving in 2008 and 2015, and once earlier this month on a charge of menacing.

The White House says that President Trump has been "made aware" of what has happened.

Hundreds of thousands of people, many of them tourists from around the world, pass daily through Times Square, the heart of the Broadway theater district.
