Rescue teams work at the scene of the accident
At least one person was killed and several others injured after the driver of a pickup truck lost control and crashed into an Apple store in the town of Hingham , Plymouth County, Massachusetts, around 11 a.m. local time.
According to authorities , the incident left at least 16 injured who were taken to South Shore Hospital, while two others were taken to another area medical center. But based on aerial images taken by local news crews, it can be seen that many more people were being treated at the location.
Dozens of injured people taken to area hospitals
Although at the moment the scene is considered a police investigation zone that cannot be accessed on foot, some witnesses who left the area told the press that the parking lot was full at the time of the accident, which led to infers that inside the premises there were many customers.
At least 10 ambulances working in the place
From the aerial images it can be seen that there were at least 10 ambulancesin the place caring for the wounded, plus the ambulances that go in and out transporting people. The vehicle that caused the accident is not seen in the aerial images, but it is known to be a van, and it is presumed that it was going at such a speed that it ended up embedded in the rear wall of the premises. The entire front of the store is a glass wall, as is the case with all Apple stores.
Authorities have not confirmed any details of the incident, but a witness told the local press that the driver of the van was a man who was injured but conscious.
“It was like a big explosion. A very loud noise”, another witness commented to the cameras.
The premises are located in a quiet suburb of the city of Boston, on Derby Street. It had opened, like every day, at 10 in the morning and the incident occurred less than an hour later. Many brands in the country, including Apple, already offer discounts for Black Friday (which will take place next Friday, after Thanksgiving), so it is common to see these days the premises full of customers.
