A man who drove a car along three blocks of pavement in New York's Times Square, killing a teenager and injuring 22 people, said he had "heard voices", according to law enforcement sources.

26 year old Richard Rojas, a US navy veteran who was arrested twice previously for drunk driving, is now in custody.

The incident evoked recent terrorist attacks by vehicles in London, Nice and Berlin but New York mayor Bill de Blasio said there was "no indication" it was an act of terrorism.
