Taxi crashes into crowd of people outside Logan Airport, police say

A taxicab plowed into a group of cab drivers sitting outside a taxi pool in East Boston on Monday afternoon, leaving 10 people injured, Massachusetts State Police said.

The Boston Globe reported that "10 people have been taken to hospitals, some with serious injuries, according to a public safety official briefed on the incident".

The injuries are of varying severity, Massachusetts State Police tell the station.

Police sources told WBZ-TV that the driver was a 57-year-old man from Cambridge, and said that he was cooperating with authorities.

The 7News channel, citing police sources, reports that the incident was not terror related but was "a case of operator error".

The people struck were standing in a break area used by cab drivers, police said.

Porter Street is in the vicinity of Logan International Airport.

Mr Procopio said the cause of the crash is under investigation.

Video of the scene showed a white cab with front end damage at rest against a building and near some picnic tables.

Gephardt Daily will update this developing story as information becomes available.
