He's been indicted for the crash that killed 1 and injured 22. 

A man accused of hitting pedestrians in Times Square has been indicted. 26-year-old Richard Rojas was incited today by a grand jury in New York City.

According to CBS Local, Rojas did not appear in court. The charges against him have not been made public. However, earlier he was arrested on charges of murder and attempted murder. Rojas' arraignment date is July 13.

Last week, Richard Rojas crashed into pedestrians in a busy intersection and killed a teen from Michigan. Tourist Alyssa Elsman, 18, died, and 22 people were injured. According to the New York Times, Rojas had several run-ins with the law.

During the time of the crash, he was under the influence of marijuana and PCP and reportedly said that he "heard voices telling him to hurt people" before the chaos unfolded.
