At least 19 people were injured and one person was killed after a vehicle barreled into an Apple store in Hingham, Massachusetts, Monday morning.

Emergency responders arrived on the scene about 20 miles southeast of Boston, where a black SUV had driven through the storefront and onto the sales floor causing multiple traumatic injuries. The injured were transported to local hospitals. The driver of the SUV was taken into police custody, according to local news

Dr. Jason Tracy, Chief of Emergency Medicine at South Shore Hospital, said he treated the injured, which included victims with head wounds, lower extremity issues, and “mangled limbs.” Some sustained life-threatening injuries, according to the hospital’s trauma chief Dr. Chris Burns.

“We had multiple resources respond to the hospital including additional surgeons and additional support staff,” Tracy added. “We were very well staffed at this time considering the day of the week and the time of the day.” 

In a statement, Apple said the person killed was a construction worker who was on the job at the shop. “We are devastated by the shocking events at Apple Derby Street today and the tragic loss of a professional who was onsite supporting recent construction at the store,” Apple wrote. “Our hearts go out to our team members and customers who were injured and all of those who were affected by this terrible incident.”

Video captured after the deadly crash showed a hole in the front of the store where the vehicle had busted through the glass. 

During a news conference following the incident, Hingham Fire Chief Steve Murphy said that crews arrived on the scene to find “multiple patients injured out in front of the store and in the store, including a few patients that were pinned against the wall by the vehicle.”

No charges have yet been filed against the driver, but a criminal investigation is underway, according to Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz.
