This is a developing story, so the details are sparse.
So far, all we know is that a car has driven through Manhattans busy Times Square, leaving 13 people injured.
Images on Instagram show people who are injured, crowds of pedestrians gathered right in the heart of Manhattan.
New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, is on the scene getting briefed.

President Trump is aware of the situation and is waiting to be updated, said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in a tweet.
Was this terrorism or an out of control driver?
The incident sounds a lot like the terror attacks that have occurred in Europe recently.
What are your predictions?
According to the Daily Mail — The driver, identified by NBC as Richard Rohas, 26, of the Bronx, has been taken into custody. He reportedly already had two DWIs to his name.
Rohas allegedly attempted to flee police after the crash, before being grabbed and bundled into a cop car by several police.
Police said that he got into a fistfight with an officer as they attempted to arrest him. That officer was not badly hurt.
Rohas has a history of drunk-driving incidents and he was ‘visually impaired’ according to officers on the scene, NBC reported.
NBC says Rohas admitted to cops that he was smoking marijuana prior to the crash, but that has not been confirmed.
He has two DWIs to his name from earlier arrests, ABC reported.
In one of those two incidents he drove at 99mph in a 50mph zone. He has also had his license suspended multiple times.
It’s not known whether the incident was intentional, but NBC reported that police are leaning towards it being an accident.
Police have all but ruled out terrorism, they said.
