“It does not appear at this time to be any indication that it was an intentional act, but more just a tragic accident,” explained Major Frank McGinn of Massachusetts State Police.

Police say the 56-year-old driver has no history of violations and is cooperating with investigators. They also say all the people he hit were fellow taxi cab drivers.
