A car traveling through Times Square has driven into a crowd of pedestrians, killing one person and injuring 20, police said.

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.
