Tragically, 22 people including women and children remain in a hospital while the 18-year old tourist from Portage, Michigan Alyssa Elsman died immediately after the accident.

Alyssa Elsman died Thursday when a man drove his vehicle down the sidewalk for three blocks into the heart of New York City's theater district.

The mayhem and death left in the trail of a auto that sped along crowded sidewalks in New York's Times Square has revived calls for banning vehicles from the Manhattan crossroads, one of the world's busiest tourist destinations.

The Navy veteran suspected of driving his auto into pedestrians in NY reportedly told police he had been hearing voices at the time.

Richard Rojas, 26, a former Navy electrician from the Bronx, was arrested at the scene and charged with one count of murder in the death of an 18-year-old tourist and with 20 counts of attempted murder."What we know right now continues to confirm it was not an act of terror", Mayor Bill de Blasio told WNYC public radio on Friday. He did not enter a plea and has been held without bail.

After his vehicle was stopped by a metal bollard, Rojas got out, only to be tackled by a traffic agent, on- and off-duty police officers, and a security guard, Aubry said.

"Alyssa was the type of person who seemed very shy and reserved when you first met her, but once you started talking to her you realized she was smart, amusing and engaging", principal Eric Alburtus said in a statement. Authorities said he then barreled straight up the sidewalk, knocking down some pedestrians as others ran in terror, before he crashed his auto into protective barriers.

Initially, there were fears the incident had been a terrorist attack but investigators discounted that and are focusing on Rojas's sobriety and mental health. She always wanted to make people happy.

PCP, or phencyclidine, can cause users to become delusional, violent or suicidal, according to the US National Drug Intelligence Centre. He accused the person of trying to steal his identity. Rojas spent his final months in the Navy at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Florida.

In 2012, he was arrested and accused of beating a cabdriver who he said had disrespected him by trying to charge too much, according to the arrest report. According to AP officials say Rojas told officers he was hearing voices. He has two prior convictions for drunk driving, including in 2008 and 2015, according to CNN. The arresting officer said Rojas screamed, "My life is over!" as he was being detained.

Alan Ceballos, an attorney who represented Rojas in that case, said the state charges were dropped after the military stepped in to take jurisdiction over the criminal case.
