NEW YORK (Reuters) - Three people were in critical condition on Friday after a driver plowed into pedestrians a day earlier in Times Square, killing a young woman and injuring 20 others, police said.

One of the three, a 38-year-old woman from Canada, was in very critical condition, Chief of Manhattan South Detectives Bill Aubry told a news conference. Aubry said results of drug tests on the driver were expected in the next few days.
