An 18-year-old woman was killed and 22 other people injured after a car drove into a crowd of pedestrians in Times Square, the New York Fire Department said Thursday. New York police have said terrorism is not currently a suspected motive, but rather that the 26-year-old driver, identified as Richard Rojas, lost control of his vehicle. Rojas may have been intoxicated at the time of the incident and is in police custody.
"Times Square just went nuts," one person on the scene tweeted. "People screaming and running, the place is swarming with emergency vehicles and cops." Buildings in the area were reportedly on lockdown after the incident. Jeva Lange
