Who is Bradley Rein?
According to reports, Bradley Rein rammed a dark-colored SUV which struck people after slamming through the store's window at an unknown speed. “First responders found coworkers and other bystanders rendering first aid to multiple victims in need of urgent care,” the office said in a news release. According to Hingham Fire Chief Steve Murphy, there were victims who were pushed against the wall by the car and others who were hurt both outside and inside the store.
According to him, 14 ambulances and seven fire engines arrived. Kevin Bradley, 65, of New Jersey, was identified by police as the person killed at the scene, according to Cruz, who also noted that the crash's investigation is still ongoing, as reported by CNN.
“We are devastated by the shocking events at Apple Derby Street today and the tragic loss of a professional who was onsite supporting recent construction at the store,” a spokesperson for the tech giant told the outlet, as reported by Mass Live.
Dr William Tollefsen, a Weymouth first responder, reported using a restaurant next to the Apple Store to triage people and keep them warm. He claimed that the victims had damaged limbs and head trauma, as per the report.
Officials stated the names of the injured would not be revealed until families were notified. According to them, Boston Medical Center admitted three patients and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston got two patients. It's unclear if the facilities counted patients who had been transferred.
The upmarket Derby Street shops' back corner is where you'll find the Apple Store, which has a huge glass storefront. Numerous customers drive through the vast parking lot that the store's entrance confronts every day. This time of the year, there are many people at the Apple Store and the nearby eateries and stores.
