One person is dead and 22 are injured after a driver (Richard Rojas, 26) with a history of drunken driving arrests plowed through a crowd of pedestrians at New York’s Times Square.

Responders said that Rojas began on a reckless rampage around noon near 42nd street. He was seen making a u-turn before driving against traffic at a high speed before slamming into a crowd of people.

The driver was taken into custody, having been tackled after attempting to flee from his maroon Honda.
