It's interesting that from Louisiana/Virginia you seem to know things that friends in NYC don't. Should they be paralyzed right now? News to the city!

Because it is not a regular accident or it wouldn't be on TV! It is after all Times Square which makes it Controversial when the coverage on TV is as much as it is to get onto National TV for as long as it is shown now...

Anything else you need?

Hello! 6-square blocks closed till further notice. Plan on walking to your function!
Prior to 911, it wouldn't get reported on National news.
We are now conditioned to expect the worst, and waste Police resources on every event.

It's not. I wouldn't plan on driving through Times Square and there will probably be an increased presence of gawkers and police, but the city is not shut down over a drunk driving incident.

Don't change your plans, by tonight there'll likely be no signs of the accident left.

DWI for what reason?

Weren't all the 9/11 terrorists on drugs to stay calm before they id what they were suppose to do.

I have heard that most terrorist are on medications or other things to stay calm and get calmly through security or they will get caught for getting too nervous or seating too much and giving away that they are not a regular passenger.

But this could be a "regular" DWI. With now becoming a "famous" guy for 15 min.

Horrible. Getting run over and killed.


Rest in peace to the individual that lost their life today and speedy recovery for the injured.
