It seems like if it were a planned terrorist attack, the driver would have selected a far larger vehicle and probably not ended up propped against a pole but it's a little early to rule it out. I know when I first heard it, my initial thought was terrorist attack, particularly given the location.


I thought the same as soon as I saw the alerts on my phone....terrorism.

Wish we could embed tweets here. Twitter is the fastest by a mile for breaking news developments. According to CBS New York, the NYPD is saying it wasn't a terrorist attack (video embedded in tweet). Seems a little early to make that statement.

@CBSNews:

Thanks both, I'm not from the States and thought you called them DUI's and DWI was something different.


Driving Under the Influence.
Driving While Intoxicated/Impaired
Pretty much all the same...just different levels of crime I think really.
I think that most people that drink have gotten behind the wheel after a few or maybe a few too many.
Not really a good idea in either case, as it can ruin your life and the lives of others as in this case.

It depends on the state - different states have different names for the same type of offense.

Live news saying it might be a DWI incident.


At noon?

I doubt that.

Because I don't like wasting my time putting together an OP only to hit the "post" button and find out that somebody who posted a one or two line OP, posted first and so my thread is closed?

But hey, feel free to write up an comprehensive OP about this breaking news story, post it and then have it immediately closed.

CBS is reporting that it is a 26 year old with two prior DUI arrests. From the Bronx. Watching live.

Yeah well...noon would be early for you or me to get sloshed but there are some people that start drinking when they get out of bed.

Now Japanese Terrorism, Honda is a Japanese car. I wonder if it was a sticking gas peddle, some manufacturers are having problem with that. Maybe a person had their foot on both the brake and the gas, high heels will sometimes cause that to happen, I know a lot of women who take driving shoes with them when they wear high heels. Maybe a person had a medical event. Maybe someone was pissed off at something and wasn't thinking. Maybe it was a terrorist event cut short.

There could be lots of explanations for this, I hope too many people were not seriously hurt. I suppose in a short time details will come out. These kinds of accidents happen once in a while, we just hear more about them with the net. If it is terrorism, than that is really concerning. Well, it is concerning to the people who were hurt no matter whether it is terrorism or not.

Hopefully the injuries are not too bad, being crippled from something like that would suck.
