Breaking: 1 dead; 20 injured after car runs people down in Times Square

New York, NY – At least one person has died after a car slammed into a crowd of pedestrians in Times Square Thursday, injuring more than a dozen people, senior officials familiar with the investigation tell NBC 4 New York.  

NYPD told YC at least 20 injuries and one fatality. The number cannot be confirmed until all pedestrians are evaluated. 

The driver, believed to be from the Bronx, was taken into custody after barreling into the lunch-hour crowd near 43rd Street and Seventh Avenue shortly before noon, sources said. Fire officials say 20 people were hurt, but it’s not clear if all those victims had been hit by the vehicle. 

This is a developing story.
