Here is one with audio, it was a single driver that has been taken into custody:

At Least 1 Dead After Car Slams Into Crowd in Times Square | NBC New York

I would think a terrorist would try to take more people out at once. Maybe a drunk illegal alien though! We have a lot of arrests and deaths related to illegal aliens drinking and driving and that is a FACT!

Latest CBS tweet cites NY police as saying that it appears to be a DWI case.


But, way to early to know anything for sure. I mean, it could have been a drunk terrorist.

Does not seem like terrorism to me, gathering from past acts, I do not believe the terrorist would be in custody. They either blow themselves up or get away...
Anyway, prayers for all victims. My husband was supposed to be down there today. Glad his meeting was canceled.

Because this is the first incident to ever tie up traffic?
Or because there's never been another traffic incident shown on the news before?

Or...?


It is truly terrible that people were hurt and that one is reported dead but car accidents happen every minute of every day.
Not sure why this would cause such extreme concern other than that paranoia has overtaken rational thought.

Considering the amount of terrorist attacks that have been carried out across the world using a vehicle to smash into a crowd of pedestrians, I think we need to reserve discussion until more comes out.
Thank you. It gets so frustrating when some people act like everything is nothing without any information at all.
