(TIML NEWS) I was actually 2 blocks away when this actually happened. The city was in chaos traffic backed all the way up to Harlem because of what this disturbed young man had caused.

On Thursday afternoon (May 18), a car crashed into pedestrians in the heart of New York City’s Times Square. The impact reportedly left one person dead and 12 people injured, ABC News reports. The incident occurred on 45th Street and Broadway.

Law enforcement officials believe this to be an accident, but they’ve yet to confirm the motive behind the crash. Per Buzzfeed News, a witness saw the Sedan run a “red or yellow light and hit pedestrians who were crossing the street.”
