Car Crashes Into Apple Store, Injuring 20 and Killing 1
(UnitedVoice.com) – The CDC reported that more than 7,000 pedestrians died as a result of motor vehicle accidents in 2020. In recent months, there have been a number of instances of people hitting large groups with their cars. That’s what happened at a store before Thanksgiving.
On November 21, a vehicle crashed into an Apple store in Massachusetts. The incident occurred after 10 a.m., killing 65-year-old Kevin Bradley and injuring 20 others. According to Plymouth District Attorney Tim Cruz, authorities arrested 53-year-old Bradley Rein and charged him with reckless operation of a vehicle and reckless homicide by motor vehicle. The defendant pleaded not guilty at his arraignment.
CBS News reported that Rein allegedly told police that he was looking for a store to buy eyeglasses when his foot got stuck on the gas pedal. He said he tried to use the brake but couldn’t stop the SUV. He passed a breathalyzer after the accident.
Per court docs: a witness who was outside the Hingham Apple Store estimated the vehicle was going around 60 mph. She told investigators the vehicle did not appear to slow down or apply its brakes @wbz https://t.co/qiO5RoizIs

There was another accident involving a large group in November as well. Police recruits in Los Angeles, California, were out for an early morning run when a car plowed into them. Reports indicated 25 recruits ended up in the hospital. Police are currently putting together a case against the driver in that accident. He is out on bail while law enforcement wraps up the investigation.
