Locals say crash left ‘gaping hole’ in Apple store: ‘It sounded like a bomb went off’

Witnesses Lynne Goyuk and Emily McKenna told Boston25News about what they saw before and after the crash.

“It sounded like a bomb went off,” Ms Goyuk said. “We saw several people who should have sought medical attention, but they wouldn’t go over because they knew other people were critical.”

Ms McKenna said: “I just heard like glass shatter, and everyone ran to the window because they thought it was a smash and grab, and there was just a gaping hole in the middle of the Apple Store. I didn’t see the car drive by but someone said it was going pretty fast, so maybe he just lost control.”
