First responders arrived at the scene after a vehicle crashed outside an Apple store in Massachusetts on Monday.
At least one person was killed in the incident and 14 people were taken to local hospitals, including four of the victims in critical condition, according to local media. The vehicle was still lodged against the back wall of the store in the early afternoon, and Hingham Police called a tow truck to remove it.
“This morning was an unthinkable morning and people are trying to come to terms with it and figure out what happened,” Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz said at a press conference.
“This investigation is active and ongoing,” he said, adding that a dark-colored SUV drove through the store window and struck several people.

“We are devastated by the shocking events at Apple Derby Street today and the tragic loss of a professional who was on hand to support the store’s recent construction, the company said. and to customers who were injured and to all or those affected by this terrible incident.
