Driver arrested after one killed, 16 hurt in Apple store crash in Massachusetts

(HINGHAM, Mass.) — A man died and 16 people were injured after an SUV crashed into an Apple store in Hingham, Massachusetts, Monday morning, the Plymouth County District Attorney said.

The 2019 Toyota 4Runner barreled into the store at about 10:45 a.m., smashing through the glass, which struck multiple people, District Attorney Tim Cruz said at a news conference.

People both inside and outside of the store were injured, and a few people were pinned up against the wall of the store, according to Hingham Fire Chief Steve Murphy. Bystanders helped provide first aid, Murphy said.

Officials at South Shore Hospital said it received patients with head trauma, “mangled limbs” and life-threatening injuries.

Cruz said investigators are looking into “every avenue” of the crash, including whether there is a criminal element.

The driver, 53-year-old Bradley Rein, was arrested Monday night for reckless homicide by motor vehicle, according to prosecutors.

Kevin Bradley, 65, of New Jersey, was identified as the man killed. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the prosecutor’s office.

“This morning was an unthinkable morning and people are trying to get through it and process what happened,” Cruz said.

Hingham is about 20 miles southwest of Boston.
