Posted July 04, 2017

A taxi crashed into a group of pedestrians Monday afternoon outside Boston's Logan Airport, injuring almost a dozen people, authorities say.

According to two law enforcement sources, the incident is being treated as an accident, not an act of terrorism.

The incident appears to be accidental, sources told ABC News.

Procopio said the cause of the crash is under investigation.

A taxi struck the pedestrians in a taxi-queuing area on Monday afternoon (local time) near Logan International Airport in East Boston. The most seriously injured person has broken legs and "maybe some internal chest injuries", he said.

The PLA is responsible for defending the city and comprises only mainland troops, with Hong Kong residents unable to serve, but it is barred from interfering in local affairs.

The crash occurred around 1:40 p.m. after a 56-year-old taxi driver lost control of his cab and plowed through a break area where other drivers were standing.

The Boston Globe and WCVB reports that investigators are investigating possible operator error.

Boston Police, Boston Fire Dept., Boston EMS and the state police were all on the scene.

A police spokesperson was not immediately available to respond to a request for further information.
