The New York Police Department cordoned off the area following the incident.


The driver identified was previously arrested in 2008 and 2015 for drunk driving, news agency Reuters reported.
“Preliminarily it looks more like a vehicle accident than anything else,” a New York police spokesman told AFP. President Donald Trump was informed of the incident. Despite officials saying the incident did not look like an act of terror, an injured victim told Reuters said the driver’s actions seemed intentional. The New York police confirmed that there were ‘multiple injuries’. Separately, the NY Fire Department took to Twitter to say that 13 people were treated on site. The driver is in custody, and his alcohol levels are being tested, reported AP. The vehicle, a red Honda sedan, was briefly seen on fire, reported AFP. Pictures depicted the car lying on its side on the sidewalk of Times Square with smoke coming out of its hood. Fire tenders were also seen dousing flames from the car.
