10 Injured As Taxi Hits Pedestrians Near Boston Airport: Police

State police say they believe the incident was not intentional.

An incident at Boston’s Logan Airport that injured 10 Monday afternoon is not believed to be intentional, Massachusetts State Police said.

A taxi driver slammed into people sitting in an outdoor break area around 1:40 p.m., State Police Maj. Frank McGinn said at a press conference.

“It appears at this point that all of the injured were fellow cab drivers,” he said of the victims, whose injuries are said to range in severity. One of the victims is in serious condition, police said. 

The driver, who was identified only as a 56-year-old Cambridge man, was described as having no known ties to terrorism and is cooperating with authorities.

“He is known to be a very nice gentleman,” McGinn said.

State police tweeted just after 2 p.m. that multiple agencies, including Boston police, fire, and EMS, were at the scene.

“Preliminary reports indicate several pedestrians with injuries, varying severity,” the tweet said.

Video of the scene, obtained by local media, showed a white cab resting near a building and picnic tables. At least one person was seen being loaded onto a stretcher, The Associated Press reported.
