The incident took place on the Promenade des Anglais during a firework display, the reports said.
One image on Twitter showed about a dozen people lying on the street, some being tended to.
The local prefecture has urged people in the area to remain indoors, calling the incident "an attack".
Some reports spoke of shots being fired but these have not been confirmed.
Social media video showed people running through the streets in panic following the incident.
A journalist with the Nice Matin newspaper reported from the scene that there was "a lot of blood and without doubt many injured".
Another image on Twitter showed a white lorry stopped in the middle of the promenade with damage to its front, and four police officers observing it while taking cover behind a palm tree.
Starting to think we need a 'terrorist thread', depressingly.
