Vehicle Strikes Group of Pedestrians in East Boston

The car at the centre of the crash appeared to be a Boston city taxi

Massachusetts State Police are now investigating after a vehicle ran into a crowd of people near Boston's Logan Airport on Monday afternoon.

Two law enforcement sources told CNN the incident is being treated as an accident, not an act of terrorism.

The driver of the taxi appeared to have accidentally hit the gas, instead of the brake.

The state police said injuries range in severity from serious to minor.

Boston police, Boston firefighters, and Boston EMS workers are also at the scene, State Police said.
