Car plows into Apple store outside Boston leaving people trapped and building near collapse 

BREAKING NEWS: One person is dead and at least 10 people are injured after car plows into Apple store outside Boston at ‘high speed’ and leaves building on verge of collapse

  • Up to 10 people have been injured after a vehicle crashed into an Apple store outside of Boston on Monday morning
  • As many as four people were trapped inside the building at the time, but early reports suggest everyone now been rescued
  • Several people have been spotted being taken out of the store in Hingham, Massachusetts on stretchers

One person has apparently died after a vehicle drove at a high rate of speed into an Apple store outside of Boston, leaving the building on the verge of collapse.

At least 10 people were injured in the crash at the Hingham, Massachusetts store just before 11am on Monday, only one hour after it opened for the day.

Four people were said to be trapped inside the building at the time, according to The Patriot Ledger, but early reports suggest the last person who was inside the building has now been rescued.

Emergency crews responding to the scene found a gaping hold in the glass front of the store on Derby Street marking where the SUV slammed into the building. 

Several people were later spotted being taken out of the store about 17 miles southeast of Boston in stretchers. Others were being tended to by dozens of first responders on the scene, and a medical helicopter has been called.

An MBTA bus is also said to be en route to be used as a triage as the scene is being treated as a ‘mass casualty event.’

Meanwhile, a nurse at a local hospital told WCVB they were told to expect anywhere from seven to 10 victims to be transported to their emergency room. 

Police are now calling for a tow truck to remove the car, which is stopped along the back wall of the store, The Patriot Ledger reports.

Witnesses say they heard a loud crash and ran over to see the vehicle inside the store on Monday morning, reporter Robert Goulston tweeted.

Another man took to Twitter to share that his wife was at the store when a ‘black 4Runner drove full speed’ into the store.

‘She said there are a lot of injuries — my wife used a spare jacket as a tourniquet.’ 

The incident comes at the beginning of a busy holiday week, when many take off from work.
