Police investigate crash of taxi into group in Boston, Massachusetts

BOSTON  — Authorities have seized a taxi that crashed into a group of cab drivers near Boston‘s Logan International Airport and are investigating what happened in what they call a “tragic accident.”

The taxi jumped a curb and struck a group of people gathered at an outdoor break area for cabbies on Monday, injuring 10 people.

Massachusetts State Police said the taxi’s driver remained at the scene, was interviewed by troopers and then was allowed to leave. They said there’s no information to suggest the crash was deliberate and no charges have been filed.

The crash briefly raised fears of terrorism akin to attacks in Britain and France, but state police Maj. Frank McGinn says there doesn’t appear to be any indication of an intentional act.

The driver is from Cambridge, just west of Boston across the Charles River.
