The accident occurred at Boston Logan taxi stand on Porter Street at Tomahawk Drive when the 56-year-old taxi driver pressed on the gas instead of the break causing the car to jump the curb and collide with numerous pedestrians all of whom were believed to be taxi drivers, according to the Massachusetts State Police.
The Boston Police, Fire Department and EMS all arrived at the scene to treat the victims of the crash. The injuries sustained by the victims varied. Some were transported to Massachusetts General Hospital while others were taken to Tufts Medical Center.
The 56-year-old taxi driver remained at the scene while the State Troopers investigated the collision.
The taxi cab collided with a non-denominational worship center prior to crashing into the eating area where several drivers wait in line for fares as well as take breaks.
The taxi was seized for further investigation. Though the accident appears to be accidental, police officials took precautionary measures due to the numerous terror attacks in Europe.
“Parties injured are strongly advised to go to a nearby medical center following a traffic collision if one denies emergency assistance.
