An SUV smashed through the glass of Apple Derby Street in Hingham, Massachusetts, on Monday morning, ending up lodged in the brick wall in the back of the store, injuring several.

Apple Derby Street has been closed following a black SUV being driven through the storefront glass at around 11am local time. The 4,000 square-foot Apple Store is located toward the rear of a shopping plaza, with a car park in front of it.

According to local news WCBV5, the SUV smashed a whole through the glass before being stuck in the store.

“It was like a big explosion,” a witness told the station, “it was so loud.”

Another witness said that the driver of the SUV appeared to be injured but conscious and alert, following the crash.

At least five people are said to have been injured, though a local nurse told WCBV5 that South Shore Hospital had been warned to expect up to ten people to be sent to the emergency room.

The Patriot Ledger says that by 11:49 am local time, the hospital was rejecting additional trauma patients. Police at the Apple Store called for a tow truck to remove the SUV, which was against the store’s back wall.

Reportedly, the SUV trapped a number of people inside the Apple Store. Multiple ambulances are attending.

Police have not issued a statement, though the nature of the crash suggests it was an accident rather than an attempted robbery. Apple Stores have previously been targeted by thieves trying to crash through windows.
