    More than 20 people were injured when a car sped into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Sunday, police said.

    At 4:39 p.m. local time, a red SUV drove into the town’s Christmas parade, Waukesha Police Chief Dan Thompson said at a press conference Sunday evening.

    The police department has recovered a vehicle allegedly associated with the incident and investigators are looking into a possible person of interest.

    Victims have been transported to hospitals via ambulances, police officers and family members, Thompson said.

    Authorities believe there are no other threats to the community, and the scene is now safe.

    “Kathy and I are praying for Waukesha tonight and all the kids, families, and community members affected by this senseless act,” Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers wrote on Twitter. “I’m grateful for the first responders and folks who acted quicklyto help, and we are in contact with local partners as we await more information.”

    The investigation is ongoing.
