Chaos struck Times Square in New York City after a wrong-way driver plowed their car into a crowd of pedestrians.

20 injuries have been reported so far from the incident during a very busy time of the day Thursday morning. One person appears to have died.

The 26-year-old Bronx driver is reportedly in custody following the crash. He allegedly has a history of DUIs. Witnesses apparently pinned him to the ground when he tried to flee the scene.

Video footage showed a badly damaged Honda resting at an angle atop a set of pole barriers.
