New York - A New Jersey teenager mowed down by a driver on a Times Square sidewalk is out of a hospital. But one of her high-school classmates and five other victims are still hospitalized.

Thursday’s crash killed a Michigan teen and injured 22 other people. They included Dunellen, New Jersey, high school seniors Destiny Lightfoot and Jessica Williams.

Dunellen Public Schools Superintendent Gene Mosley says Lightfoot was released from a hospital Tuesday, while Williams remained in the hospital after leg surgery Monday. Relatives of the students couldn’t immediately be reached.

Driver Richard Rojas is charged with murder. He hasn’t entered a plea.
