26 year old Richard Rojas was driving the car that crashed into time square killing on pedestrian.
Law enforcement sources tell us Rojas admitted smoking marijuana Thursday morning before he got behind the wheel. Police say he drove the wrong way on 7th Ave for a few blocks before swerving onto the sidewalk at 42nd street and accelerating through the crowd for 3 blocks.
Cops say Rojas has previous arrests for DWI, one in 2008 and one in 2013. His most recent arrest was earlier this year for menacing.
NYPD confirmed the victim who died on scene was an 18-year-old girl, and at least 22 others were injured.
