HINGHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — On Monday morning, first responders swarmed the Derby Street Shops in Hingham for a SUV that crashed into the storefront of the Apple Store located there.
According to a press conference held by Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz, one person was killed, later identified as Kevin Bradley, 65, of New Jersey. At least 16 people suffered injuries and were hospitalized as a result of the crash. Multiple people were seen being lifted into stretchers and ambulances following the crash. Of those injured, 14 were sent to the nearby South Shore Hospital in Weymouth, and two people were taken to a hospital in Boston.
"This morning was an unthinkable morning, and people are trying to get through it and process what happened. It appears at the outset, preliminarily, the dark-colored SUV, went through at a rate of speed undetermined, through a plate glass window and struck multiple people. This investigation is active and ongoing," Cruz said.
