The truck ran over dozens of people.

At least five people were killed and more than 40 injured after a car sped through a Christmas parade in the state of Wisconsin, US police said.

The footage shows a red pickup truck ramming into the crowd in the city of Waukesha, west of Milwaukee, around 4:40 p.m. local time (10:40 p.m. GMT).

Police Chief Dan Thompson said he ran over dozens of people, including children.

A person is detained. The incident does not appear “for now” to be an act of terrorism, an official said.
