Car injures pedestrians in Times Square

A vehicle has driven on to a crowded pavement in New York City’s Times Square, reportedly killing one person and injuring several others.

The driver is in custody and the area has been sealed off, according to the New York Police Department.

At least 13 patients were being treated at the scene, according to the New York Fire Department.

The vehicle reportedly jumped the kerb at 7th Avenue and 45th St near the city’s popular tourist spot.

Police reportedly said the driver “lost control” and the collision appeared to be an accident.

They added the incident was not connected to terrorism, CBS reported.

But a witness told Reuters the vehicle drove against traffic before hitting the kerb and striking pedestrians.
