Multiple people are injured after a car crashed into a crowd near Times Square.
Television images taken at the scene midday Thursday showed people being taken away on stretchers.
The car came to rest with two of its wheels in the air, leaning on a lamppost and steel barriers intended to block vehicles from getting onto the sidewalk.
Thirteen people are being treated, according to the New York City Fire Department.
