    Could be nothing but should be monitored just in case.
    A car has ploughed into pedestrians in Times Square, New York.
    All sounds so familiar.
    RT is covering it live.
    One reported death so far.

    Someone driving while intoxicated apparently, so not terror.

    It would be quite remarkable if it was drunk driving. What are the chances that of all the places in all of the US that a drunk driver would mount the pavement and run into dozens of pedestrians that it would happen in one of the most high profile locations in the US?

    If you were picking an ideal high profile location for one of these types of attacks Times Square would certainly be in the top ten and in fact would have a good claim to be the ideal location.

    Have the Police issued a statement claiming it is purely a drink driving incident?

    One clear fact is that the perpetrator isnt caucasian

    "God" made him do it apparently.

    Driver tried to flee deadly Times Square crash in New York | Daily Mail Online

    Not saying that that was the case here but I do recall that after the attack in Fresno the Media were reporting that the attacker Mohammad something or other shouted "God is Great".

    In the small print they revealed that they had done us the favour of translating what he shouted into English. What he had actually shouted was "Allahu Akbar".

    Gunman kills three in Fresno, shouting ‘God is great’ in Arabic during incident

    Definitely don't look like a drunk driver. People who are that pissed that they mount the pavement into loads of people normally are barely conscious. It looks like he's high on coke or summat.

    Thank God for that bollard that topped him. He is one of millions that can't accept the fate that they are nobodies and not rich like he is brainwashed into thinking h deserves to be.
    Expect more of these macho males, but without the dollar bills to live it.

    They will strike against whites, as life is not fair to him, in his dense brain.

    That's unbelievable.

    How come this is getting no media traction? It's nowhere to be seen on the NYT homepage, it's all Trump/Russia on there.

    The guy at 51 seconds who disappears under the car must be the one who was killed.

    Who's the 'they' that orders the video of this murderous rampage be taken down? It's an outage that that video would be suppressed.

    Why do they label the highlighted car as "Suspect Vehicle"? Is there some doubt in someones mind which Vehicle was involved?

    It looks pretty suspect to me.
