One person was in custody and at least 13 people were injured after a speeding car jumped a curb and injured several people in New York's Times Square on Thursday afternoon.

The FDNY said 13 people were being treated for injuries, and Reuters reported one person had been killed. The FDNY would not confirm any deaths.

An NYPD source confirmed to Fox News that an unnamed individual had been taken into custody in the incident.

"We saw people laying on the sidewalk...with crowds of people laying around them," one witness told Fox News. "You could see clumps of people down the sidewalk with people all around them trying to help them."

Several buildings in the area were reportedly on lockdown as police swarmed the busy intersection, which is heavily populated with tourists. Numerous blocks had been taped off by police around the scene.
