A tragic teenager killed in the Times Square car rampage had posted a poignant video from the plaza just minutes earlier.

Alyssa Elsman, 18, had been enjoying a visit to New York with her family when she was hit by driver Richard Rojas.

He drove the wrong way down a street in the heart of the city, before mounting the pavement in Times Square, ploughing through pedestrians.

Miss Elsman was killed and a further 22 people were injured.

She posted a ‘Boomerang’ video – a short clip which repeats – from Times Square on her Instagram page on Thursday.

A clock in the video indicates the time is 11.12am – around 45 minutes before the carnage.

Authorities said there is no indication the incident was an act of terrorism.

Rojas, a US Navy veteran from the Bronx, has a history of drink driving.
