Navy veteran in custody after Times Square crash

20 Mai, 2017, 03:19 | Author: Come Portier
  • A smashed car sits on the corner of Broadway and 45th Street in New York's Times Square after driving through a crowd of pedestrians Thursday

"Out of an abundance of caution", Mayor Bill de Blasio added.

Photographers snapped pictures of Rojas that appeared to show him climbing from the wrecked auto and running through the street before he was tackled by a group that included a muscular security supervisor at a nearby Planet Hollywood restaurant.

"If you didn't know her, you might think she's reserved or shy", school principal Eric Alburtus said.

Lowe says the driver then got out of his vehicle and started running until people tackled him.

"He's just mowing down people", said Asa Lowe, of Brooklyn, who was standing outside a store when he heard screaming.

The crash happened at midday on a hot, clear day that brought large crowds of people into the streets to enjoy the good weather. "He didn't stop. He just kept going".

IPL 10: Coulter-Nile not underestimating Mumbai Indians
At one point, it looked like, SRH may go through if the rain persisted and not allowing KKR a chance to bat. With the team next facing Mumbai Indians, Coulter-Nile will be hoping to continue his form with the ball.


The White House says that President Donald Trump has been "made aware" that a auto plowed into a crowd of pedestrians in Times Square and that he will continue to receive updates as the situation unfolds. They didn't believe in me at one time in my lifetime. Ken Bradix, a door host supervisor at Planet Hollywood, struck him to get him to stop, Balde said.

Planet Hollywood said Bradix "selflessly and heroically took action, helping to stop the fleeing suspect".

Kelly Graves said she feared the worst, maybe a bomb, as "chaos" erupted and people began running.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer tweeted that Trump was briefed before NY authorities confirmed the death. It was unclear when Rojas, who was in custody, would get a lawyer or be arraigned.

The sidewalks in many parts of Times Square are lined with metal posts created to prevent cars from getting onto the sidewalks and other public areas. We reserve the right to exclude comments that we deem to be inconsistent with our editorial standards.
