Officials say 18-year-old Alyssa Elsman was visiting New York City from MI and was with her younger sister at the time of the tragic crash. The sources say Rojas, who has a history of DWI arrests and license suspensions, made a wrong turn on Seventh Avenue and started careening down the sidewalk, mowing down pedestrians before crashing into a traffic pole. An 18-year-old tourist from MI died at the scene, officials said. Her 13-year-old sister was with her at the time, and was injured in the incident.
