    BOSTON — Emergency crews in Hingham and surrounding towns responded to a mass casualty incident at an Apple store where a driver crashed through the glass storefront.

    “It really was very tragic,” Mickey Finn, who was at the scene Monday morning, told 7 News’ Dan Hausle.

    Police and rescue crews responded to Derby Street sometime after 11 a.m. to a report a car had crashed through the glass wall of an Apple store and that at least eight people had sustained injury and one person had died, according to WCVB.

    Witnesses on the scene told reporters the car seemed to accelerate into the store. The driver was injured but able to communicate with first responders.

    Crews from Abington, Weymouth, Hull and Scituate also responded to reports that several people may be trapped and the structure itself in danger of collapsing, according to Norfolk City Control, a dispatching agency that serves multiple Massachusetts communities.
