A vehicle struck several people in New York City's Times Square on Thursday afternoon, according to the New York City Fire Department.
Photos from the scene show a maroon Honda Accord lodged between barriers along a sidewalk in the tourist destination.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said one person died and another 23 were injured. Law enforcement officials do not believe the incident was an act of terrorism, he said.
Video posted on Twitter shows the New York City Police Department arresting a man on the scene. A spokesman for the police department said one person, later identified by police as 26-year-old Richard Rojas, was taken into custody.
Law enforcement said Rojas was from the Bronx.
