Speeding car mows down pedestrians in Times Square
« on: May 18, 2017, 12:47:44 PM »
A driver speeding the wrong way up Seventh Avenue plowed into pedestrians in Times Square, killing at least one person and injuring 18 others, law enforcement sources said.

The 26-year-old motorist, who sources said is from the Bronx and has two prior DWIs, was taken into police custody. He drove the wrong way up Seventh Avenue for up to three blocks, hitting several people along the way before crashing into a pole at 45th Street and Broadway, police and witnesses said.

Three of the injured people are in critical condition, according to police sources.

“There’s video that shows the guy just drives right through it. It’s not a pretty sight,” a high-ranking source said. “He was on the sidewalk.”

When the car finally crashed into a pole, the driver got out of the car and tried to run away, according to witnesses. He punched a police officer before several cops were able to apprehend him, witnesses said.

Oh, you're a chiropractor?  I thought you were a real doctor.
