    Sometimes when this happens it's an old person who put their foot on the gas instead of the break, sometimes it's an intoxicated driver, and sometimes it's a terrorist. Guess we'll find out.

    I live outside the city and I visit Times Square all the time, I'm always afraid of something like this happening.

    Why? Are you hoping there is no way that the injured people can sue to have their medical bills covered?

    I always wondered why Times square wasn't ever made into a piazza of some sorts. Pedestrians out number cars 10 to 1 if I had to guess.

    First time I have ever agreed with Steve here. Money makes problems go away.

    Not when they are that well publicized. The only way this person is getting out of it is if they happen to be good friends with Trump and he gives them a pardon for the DWI. Cases that end up as prominent as this are the ones where rich people get the book thrown at them to turn them into an example and to make up for the less prominent cases where their wealth did get them off.

    This is pretty unsettling ... I was walking through that area about 11:45 today on my way back to the Port Authority Bus Station. Must have been just before the whole thing went down ,

    Judging by the photos of the guy I wouldn't hold my breath for a pay day if I was the family of the deceased or injured.

    This may... will sound morbid but I'm glad it was just a DUI and not terrorism. Not that one is better.

    As an aside, I always thought it was odd that police did DUI sweeps at 3am - yeah, it's after bar-time - but there's no-one on the road. Think of all the 9-5 crowd after a 4 drink happy-hour binge at 7-8pm. To point of OP, you have to be a special kind of idiot to drive in NYC intoxicated...

    I just watched videos of this. Very disturbing and sure looks intentional to me.

    The TMZ article says he has admitted smoking marijuana before driving so the previous arrests might be related to marijuana not alcohol.
