Vehicle strikes crowd near Boston's Logan Airport; at least 10 people injured

A auto has driven into a crowd of pedestrians in Boston causing several injuries, police say.

Emergency officials have confirmed that 10 people were taken to hospitals with injuries.

"Preliminary reports indicate several pedestrians with injuries, varying severity", they added. Massachusetts State Police are still investigating, but said the incident appeared to be operator error and not a terrorist attack.

A Massachusetts State Police spokesman, David Procopio, told The Boston Globe that police were interviewing the driver, a man, who stayed at the scene after the crash.

The driver had no known history of violations and is cooperating with police, McGinn said.
