Yesterday at Time Square a driver mounted sidewalk and ploughed into a crowd of people. It was both sad and shocking as it injured many 21 and killed few.
One of them was an 18-year-old teenager Alyssa Elman, which was touring New York from Michigan. Her sister was also injured in the attach. Alyssa and her 13-year-old sister both were walking on the sidewalk and found themselves in the path of speeding car driven by Richard Rojas a 26 old male.

According to the police, Elsman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her sister was taken to an area hospital.
Talking to the media her boyfriend West said , he knew something was not right when She didn’t text him back.
“She would always text me back as quick as she could, and when I didn’t hear from her or her friend I knew something horrible happened,” West said.
“I knew something was wrong.”
NYPD told CBS news that the crash does not appear to be a terrorist attack. Matter of fact that Richard Rojas, has a “history of arrest for impaired driving”.
Don’t understand why was he driving in the first place, if has arrest for impaired driving before.

According to CNN, a law enforcement source confirmed Rojas tested positive for PCP, which can cause hallucinations, make users feel confused and alter mood. He is also reported to have said God made him do it.
