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 was not an act of terrorism and appears to be an accident, a spokesperson from the police said. The cause of the incident is still under investigation, police said.
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. The spokesperson did not know of any of the injuries were life-threatening.
“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.
Representatives from the Boston Fire Department and Logan Airport did not respond to request for comment.
