One person was killed while 19 sustained injuries after a speeding car crashed into a crowded pavement in New York City’s Times Square.

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

A witness told Reuters that he saw seven people being loaded onto stretchers, shoes scattered around the scene and one person covered in a bloodstained blanket.

An injured pedestrian told the agency that the driver’s actions appeared to have been “intentional”.

Other witnesses said the vehicle drove against traffic and onto the pavement before striking the pedestrians at about midday local time.

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