Five people are dead and more than 40 injured after a red SUV drove through a crowded Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday.

Waukesha authorities confirmed the deaths in a statement late on Sunday. Police said the numbers could change as many people transported themselves to hospitals.

It was not known whether the incident was related to terrorism, but an earlier shelter-in-place order in the town of around 72,000 has been lifted, according to authorities.

A video showed a red SUV hurtling in the direction of the crowd, sending people scattering as the car bore down on them.
