ORIGINAL STORY: Massachusetts State Police are trying to figure out what caused a driver to strike a group of pedestrians Monday.
Police say “several” people were injured Monday afternoon when a vehicle drove into a crowd at Porter Street and Tomahawk Drive in Boston. The incident reportedly occurred near the taxi pool where drivers wait for fares at Logan Airport.
Based on pictures from the scene, it appears the car drove onto the sidewalk and into a collection of picnic tables.
There’s no word yet on why the driver hit the bystanders, though officials reportedly don’t suspect it was related to terrorism.
