NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — One person is dead and several people are injured after being struck by a car in Times Square.

At least 12 people have been hit by a red Honda Thursday morning before it came to a stop by crashing into steel barriers at 45th and 7th Avenue.

The NYPD says the motive is not terror, but possibly a DWI. The driver, a 26-year-old man from the Bronx has two prior DWIs, according to the NYPD. He has been taken into custody.
