Car crashed into pedestrians in Times Square, killing an 18-year-old woman

NEW YORK CITY, USA – MAY 19, 2017 A fast-moving Honda sedan crashed into pedestrians in New York’s famous Times Square. 22 people were injured, one 18-year-old girl, Alyssa Elsman, lost her life.

Witnesses describe the incident as hell – injuries everywhere, one woman lying under a blood-stained blanket. It’s a miracle the incident claimed only one victim.

The car was left stationary on Broadway’s 45th Street after crashing into a utility pole. Its driver waited inside for the police and voluntarily surrendered to them.
