1 Dead, 20 Injured After Car Drives Into Crowd In Times Square

NEW YORK (KDKA/AP) — Multiple people were struck by a vehicle in Times Square in New York on Thursday.

Television images taken at the scene midday showed people being taken away on stretchers.

The car came to rest with two of its wheels in the air, leaning on a lamppost and steel barriers intended to block vehicles from getting onto the sidewalk.

One person was killed and at least 20 were injured.

Richard Rojas was taken into custody. Two law enforcement officials say he told officers he was hearing voices and expected to die.

Officials say Rojas tested negative for alcohol, but drug tests were still pending.
