A crazed man plowed into a crowd of pedestrians in Times Square in New York City Thursday.
One person was killed and at least 20 were injured. The suspect, Richard Rojas63 of the Bronx, has a history of driving under the influence, police said—although he blew a 0.0 during an alcohol screening. Drug tests were underway and officials believe he was under the influence of synthetic marijuana, or ‘K2.’
Rojas drove the maroon 2009 Honda Accord into pedestrians in Times Square after having jumped the sidewalk on the west side of Seventh Avenue at 42nd Street, continuing for three blocks before crashing at the northwest corner of 45th Street and Broadway.
As he attempted to flee from his car, police tackled him and took him into custody.
