This is the harrowing moment a driver believed to be high on synthetic marijuana plowed into pedestrians in New York City’s Times Square before telling police as he was arrested: ‘I wanted to kill them all.’

The driver, identified as 26-year-old Richard Rojas of the Bronx, was dramatically taken into custody on Thursday after killing an 18-year-old girl and seriously injuring 22 others when he drove through crowds at the popular tourist destination.

A crazed Rojas tried to flee police immediately after crashing his maroon Honda sedan in to a pole and was pictured running across the road with his arms flailing. Police said Rojas got into a fistfight with an officer as they struggled to arrest him, before he was eventually bundled into a squad car.

Rojas allegedly told police after he was arrested that he wanted to murder the innocent pedestrians and then wanted cops to kill him as well, sources told the New York Post.

‘You were supposed to shoot me. I wanted to kill them,’ he told police.

Law enforcement sources say that Rojas appeared to have smoked the synthetic drug, also known as K2, before to the crash.

Rojas, a former Navy electrician mate fireman’s apprentice who left service in 2014 and never served overseas, blew a 0.0 when tested for alcohol at the precinct following his arrest but initial testing came back positive for drug substances.
