Witnesses described seeing the vehicle “speeding up through the auction” and said it appeared to have been an accident, according to local reports.

“It hit the wall all the way to the end. It’s a concrete wall. So many people are hurt, I have no idea,” a witness told WBZ-TV.

Fox News reports that an employee named Woody Tuttle told WCVB-TV he heard tires screeching and saw the vehicle strike several people.

Tuttle told the station: “(The driver) avoided the cars and went on to hit the people who were standing between the cars.”
