One person is dead and at least 16 people have been injured after a vehicle crashed into Apple Derby Street in Hingham outside of Boston, Massachusetts on Monday morning, District Attorney for Plymouth County Tim Cruz said in a news conference Monday.
Around 10:45 a.m. numerous 911 calls came in for help at Derby Street Shops, Cruz said. Hingham police and fire personnel responded shortly thereafter to find several people injured at the Apple store, Cruz added.
“A dark-colored SUV appears, went through at a rate of speed undetermined, through a … glass window and struck multiple people,” Cruz said.
“Sixteen people have been transported to hospitals,” Cruz said. “There’s been one fatality.”
Apple’s Derby Street location in Hingham is currently closed, according to its website.
It's obviously past time to put bollards in front of every Apple location that is exposed to vehicle traffic.
For example, Apple has since added protective bollards in front of Apple Evergreen Walk (Windsor, CT) which opened in 2014 without them. pic.twitter.com/K8473YeZPM
