At least one person has died and 13 others are injured after a speeding vehicle struck pedestrians on a sidewalk in New York City's Times Square on Thursday, The Telegraph reported.

The New York Police Department closed off the area, while a Reuters witness said at least 10 people were being treated for injuries on the ground after the collision at the Midtown Manhattan tourist site.

Initial reports from local reporters suggest that the car came off 42nd Street, and drove north for four blocks, mowing dozens of people down on a pavement

One eyewitness said he saw the suspect strike pedestrians "deliberately," but an NYPD police source told CBS news they were not treating the incident as a terror attack.
