Logan airport taxi accident hospitalizes 10 people

Ten people were taken to area hospitals

BOSTON, Mass. (WWLP) – A taxi plowed into a group of fellow cab drivers Monday around 1:40 p.m. at Boston’s Logan International Airport, injuring at least ten people.

State Police said the driver of the Metro Cab is a 56-year-old Cambridge man. The drivers name will not be released unless and until he is criminally charged. He was allowed to leave the barracks after police questioned him.

Police said the taxi jumped a curb and tore into a “cab pool” area near the airport where cab drivers typically hang out waiting for their next fare.

Maj. Frank McGinn, of the Highway Patrol said, “At this point it’s under investigation. The cab driver is being cooperative with us. He’s been cooperative since the beginning of the investigation. It does not appear at this time to be any indication of an intentional act but a tragic accident.”

Ten people were taken to area hospitals with injuries ranging from minor to serious. The most seriously injured victim is a 43-year-old Cambridge man who is in serious but stable condition.
