A man drove a taxi into a group of people in Boston on Monday, injuring at least 10 pedestrians, according to state officials.

The crash occurred in East Boston at Porter Street and Tomahawk Drive near the Logan Airport taxi pool, state police said. Those who were injured were transferred to three different hospitals in the Boston area, a spokesperson for Boston EMS said.

“Preliminary reports indicate several pedestrians with injuries, varying in severity,” the state police department tweeted.
The driver of the vehicle, a 56-year-old man from Cambridge, Mass., is being interviewed by police on the scene, state police said. It is unclear if the driver was among those who were injured.
The Logan Airport’s cab pool is closed due to the ongoing investigation, police said. Members of the Boston Police Department, Boston Fire Department and Boston EMS are at the scene, state police said.
