Massachusetts State Police say a taxi cab slammed into a group of people on Porter Street in East Boston Monday near Logan International Airport’s taxi pool area.

Police are saying at least ten people have been injured.  Several seriously though severity is varying.   Boston police, fire firefighters, and emergency personnel are on the scene, state police said and will be for some time to assist.

Victims are being sent to various hospitals in the area. Rescuers could be seen loading at least one person into a stretcher, according to the Associated Press.

Video of the scene showed a white cab with front end damage at rest against a building and near some picnic tables. The vehicle is surrounded by debris.

CBS Boston reports the crash occurred around 2 p.m. Sources say a 57-year-old East Boston cab driver crashed into a break area where other drivers were gathered.

“Aerial footage from scene where car hit pedestrians near Boston’s Logan Airport.”

“Units on scene, vehicle into a group of pedestrians, Porter St at Tomahawk Driver, East Boston, near Logan taxi pool. Injuries,” the state police posted on Twitter.

The sprawling airport covers 1,700 acres and dubs itself as a “city within a city.” The airport has its own fire department, a police department, a power plant, two hotels, a chapel. The taxi pool is a staging area where drivers wait to be signaled into the airport to pick up fares.

The state police are currently saying there are no signs that this is terror related but believe it was either a mechanical failure or a medical event.  The driver of the taxi did not flee the scene and is currently cooperating with authorities according to all reports.

Boston 25 News reports operator stayed on scene and appeared to have accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake.

The Islamic State has carried out numerous attacks using cars, mostly in Europe. This happened most recently in London, but also in the 2016 attacks in Nice and Berlin. Since the driver is cooperating with all law enforcement, police are not dubbing this to be terror related at this time.

This is a developing story as the investigation is currently ongoing.  We will update as more information becomes available.
