    Watching CNN live coverage from Times Square. Driver in custody. I think reporter said he is 26. Has history of DUIs. Appears to be accident or driver error. Bomb squad being brought to area. Media asked to push back.

    I saw a tweet from the girl who was right next to her. She also said the car sped up and aimed for people.

    This is her twitter--she has more tweets @AnnieDonahey

    I did see a report on the Staten Island incident which mentioned one dead and three others not expected to survive.

    "BREAKING IN STATEN ISLAND, NYC: 5 People just struck by vehicle; 1 DOA, 3 likely to die / very critical. Broadway & Castleton Ave."
