Local police Chief Dan Thompson told a press conference that the vehicle struck more than 40 individuals, including some children.
Thompson also said one person of interest is in custody, noting that it is a "fluid investigation" and that the priority at this point is "working with families" of the victims.
One witness reportedly said it looked as though the driver of the vehicle was "trying to hit people."
"He was swerving back and forth."
Families and performers were celebrating an annual holiday event when the horror unfolded.
One witness, Angela O'Boyle, whose apartment overlooked the parade in the Milwaukee suburb, told CNN: "All I heard was screaming and then people yelling out their children's names".
She described how she “saw the car come and plow into the band that was just past my balcony at that point”.
"It hit at least two people right away and rolled over them," she said.
“And then continued down the road to People's Park which is at the end of the block -and then kept going, it didn't stop."
Brayden Kowalski, a 19-year-old witness, told Fox News he was with his family when he saw what happened.
"[The driver is] just blowing through people, kind of just dinging a lot of people, bodies flying everywhere,” Kowalski said.
