New York: At least one person died and 10 others were injured when a speeding car plowed into a crowd of pedestrians in Times Square here on Thursday, media reports said.

The driver, identified as Richard Rojas, was a US Navy veteran who had been arrested four times before for offenses including drunk driving. He was immediately taken into custody.

The vehicle, a maroon Honda, ended up against a pole on the sidewalk. Photos showed pedestrians lying in the street, and one person covered with a white sheet on the sidewalk, New York Post reported.

Witnesses claimed that the driver was heading against traffic before mounting the pavement.
