Around noon today at Times Square, the epicenter of tourism, an incident occurred where bystanders were hit by a car that had veered off the road and onto the sidewalk. Photos on social media show the car smoking on the corner of W. 45th and Broadway.
The New York Police Department, stationed in the vicinity, were quick to act and closed off the area.
According to a witness, at least one person has died and 10 pedestrians were injured and are being treated.
