Several people were injured on Monday in the North-Eastern U.S. city of Boston when a vehicle drove into a group of pedestrians, Massachusetts State Police, have said.
“The incident occurred near Boston’s Logan Airport.
“Preliminary reports indicate several pedestrians sustained injuries with varying severity,’’ the state police said.
The police said that firemen and other first responders were at the scene.
According to the Boston Globe on Twitter, no fewer than nine people were injured.
The newspaper quoted law enforcement official as saying that the incident did not appear to be terrorism.
