WATCH: Witnesses Describe Vehicle Striking Pedestrians in Times Square
At least one person was killed and 19 injured after a car rammed into a crowd in Times Square, the FDNY confirmed Thursday afternoon.
A 26-year-old male suspect, Richard Rojas, is in custody. Rojas, a Bronx resident, had two prior drunk-driving offenses, according to the NYPD.
The driver was believed to be intoxicated and fleeing a robbery, according to reports. The vehicle was left on its side and appeared to hit metal barriers which are in place to protect pedestrians from vehicles.
A woman at the scene said she heard the "big crash" and saw people running from the scene. She also saw the car on fire briefly.
"We got many pictures and then we were shooed away," she said, adding she did not see the driver or the injured people.
The woman said many people rushed over to help the injured.
Another man, who was there with his wife, estimated the car was traveling 30 mph or more.
