Times Square crash victim was 18-year-old MI woman

NYPD Counter Terrorism experts do surveillance in Times Square very close to where a crude bomb was discovered undetonated inside a stolen SUV in 2010

Yesterday's incident sparked fear in the United States financial capital after deadly car-rammings in London, Berlin and the French city of Nice, but authorities said there was no evidence the crash was terror-related.

Police say an 18-year-old woman killed by a auto that plowed through pedestrians in Times Square was a tourist from Portage, Michigan.

Law enforcement sources confirm the suspect is Richard Rojas, a 26-year-old from the Bronx.

Rojas' motivation was unclear, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday that there was "no indication that this was an act of terrorism". The sister remains in a critical condition and a Canadian citizen was seriously injured, officials said. "We start running, we don't know if another one is going to come, we don't know what's happening, everyone is panicking".

"We don't know the full analysis and whether the type of drugs in his system exacerbated his feelings in a negative way", the mayor told WNYC.

Twenty-three people were struck by the vehicle before it was stopped by a security barrier. He noted that they had changed how they handled public gatherings because of terrorist-related "ramming attacks" in Europe. The man who drove a auto into a crowd in Times Square on Thursday was in custody, in which one was killed and 22 others injured, New York's mayor said.

Rojas, who is from the Bronx area of New York City, had been arrested twice for drunken driving, in 2008 and 2015, and once this month on a charge of menacing for threatening another man with a knife, police said.

"We feel deeply for those injured and particularly for the family of the young woman who was lost".

A vehicle that struck pedestrians and later crashed is seen on the sidewalk in Times Square in New York City, May 18, 2017.
