“MADD is outraged and absolutely heartsick that a driver allegedly impaired by drugs plowed into a sidewalk full of pedestrians in Times Square this afternoon, killing an 18-year-old young woman and injuring her sister and 21 others. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families and all of those impacted by this horrific crash. Today is a sad reminder that we have so much more work to do to keep our country safe from impaired driving.
