One person is dead, 22 others have been injured after a car rammed into pedestrians in New York's Times Square. The incident took place yesterday shortly before noon. The driver, a US Navy veteran named Richard Rojas, was arrested at the scene and breathalyzed. Law enforcement officials say he told police he heard voices, and had prior convictions for driving while intoxicated. New York City mayor Bill De Blasio said there was no indication that this was an act of terrorism. The woman who was killed was an 18-year old visiting from Michigan; her 13-year old sister was among those injured.
