A car has reportedly crashed into a Christmas parade in the US, leaving multiple people injured.
Sources told CBS 58 that the event in Waukesha, Wisconsin, is currently being evacuated after reports of gunshots and a speeding vehicle.
At least seven people walking through the parade were hit and injured by a red SUV, according to Waukesha Freeman newspaper.
One man at the scene told a reporter that 'most of his family' had been hospitalised, however he and his wife walked away.
One witness said she saw people lying on the ground injured after a car raced through 'downtown Waukesha', while another described how the vehicle 'ploughed through people'.
In an unverified video shared on social media a red 4×4 can be seen smashing through a barricade as the sound of gunshots ring out in the background.

Shortly after SUV passes the crowds, police vehicles seemingly in pursuit drive past with their sirens blazing.
Witness Angelito Tenorio told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "We saw an SUV crossover, just put the pedal to the metal and just zooming full speed along the parade route.
