A criminal investigation is underway in Massachusetts after a man crashed an SUV into an Apple Store on Monday, killing one person and injuring 16.
The crash happened about 10:45 a.m. EST at the Derby Street Shops in Hingham, about 16 miles southeast of downtown Boston. The deceased victim was identified as Kevin Bradley, 65, of New Jersey, who was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the prosecutor’s office.
Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz said that the driver’s vehicle, a dark-colored SUV, drove through a plate glass window at the front of the store and struck several people, pinning some of them against the wall.
“There were people with numerous injuries inside the store. Right now family members are being notified. Needlessly to say, employees working within that store and nearby are visibly shaken. This morning was an unthinkable morning and people are trying to get through it and process what happened. We are very limited as to what we can say at this point.”
Hingham Fire Chief Steve Murphy said seven fire trucks and 14 ambulances responded to the scene, with victims transported to South Shore and Boston hospitals. Bystanders rendered first aid to some of those injured, said, Murphy.
