Driver Charged With Murder in Times Square Crash

The driver who barrelled through sidewalks in New York’s Times Square on Thursday has been charged with murder and 20 counts of attempted murder. The 26-year-old, Richard Rojas, allegedly steered the car onto the sidewalk and rammed dozens of pedestrians for three blocks, killing one person and injuring 22 others. Surveillance video reportedly shows his red sedan jump the curb and then veer into a group of people. Alyssa Elsman, 18, was killed in the rampage. Four others remained in critical condition on Friday morning. Rojas tested positive for PCP, according to CNN, and he told allegedly police that God made him do it.
