A taxi plowed into a crowd near Boston’s Logan International Airport on Monday, leaving 10 people injured, in a crash that authorities described as accidental, the Gateway Pundit reports.
In a statement, the Massachusetts State Police said, “At this preliminary point in the investigation, there is no information that suggests the crash was intentional.”
The police believe the crash is a case of “operator error” in which the 56-year-old driver stepped on the gas instead of the brake pedal.
Investigators have seized the cab and they are interviewing the cab driver, who reportedly hails from Cambridge, Massachusetts, according to State Police.
In a Twitter post, Boston Emergency Medical Services wrote that at least 10 people were taken to hospitals following the collision.
Though the incident appeared to be accidental, authorities have raised terror alarms because of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday and several recent terror attacks in Europe where vehicles were used to attack innocent pedestrians.
