A number of people have been injured after a car drove into a group of people in Boston.

Ten people have been taken to hospitals, some with serious injuries, the Boston Globe reports.

The incident occurred near the Logan International Airport taxi pool.

State Police are on the scene, the agency said in a tweet.

At the early stage of the investigation the act does not seem to be terror-related.

The driver, a 56-year-old man, remained on the scene after the crash and is being interviewed by police, said State Police spokesman David Procopio.

Video of the scene showed a white taxi with front end damage at rest against a building and near some picnic tables. The vehicle is surrounded by debris.

Rescue crews loaded at least one person onto a stretcher.

Police said the cause of the crash is under investigation and in a statement said the crash does not look to be intentional.

The driver is currently being interviewed by police.
