1 dead, 16 hurt after car crashes into Hingham Apple store

HINGHAM − A man has died and 16 people were injured Monday after a black SUV crashed into the Apple store in the Derby Street shopping center. Plymouth County District Attorney Tim Cruz said there is an “active criminal investigation” into the crash.

It was about 10:45 a.m. Monday when the SUV, a Toyota 4Runner, crashed into the glass-plated storefront and “struck multiple people,” Cruz said. The SUV reached the back wall and trapped several people inside. One person died, 14 others were taken to South Shore Hospital and two were taken to Boston-area hospitals. A medical helicopter also responded.

“Right now, family members are being notified or in the process of being notified,” Cruz told members of the media at 1:20 p.m. “This morning was an unthinkable morning, and people are trying to process what happened. … This investigation is active and ongoing, and we are very limited as to what we can say at this point.”
