SHOCKING photos show the carnage at an Apple store on ‘the brink of collapse’ after a car drove through the window, killing one person.
Sixteen people were also injured after the SUV plowed through the store outside of Boston around 10:45 a.m. Monday morning.
When police arrived at the store, “several” people were injured after being hit by the male driver, who has not been publicly identified at this time.
Kevin Bradley, 65, of New Jersey was killed at the scene.
Apple said he was a “professional who was on site and supported the recent build of the store.”

Four people were trapped inside the store during the chaos but have since been rescued.
“It’s absolutely unthinkable, absolutely tragic,” District Attorney Tim Cruz said in a news conference.
Witnesses said the black Toyota 4Runner was accelerating at high speed when it crashed into the building, but it’s unclear if there is surveillance camera footage.
The vehicle was removed from the area around 3:30 p.m. and had severe damage to the front.
The building is being evaluated following initial reports that the store is on the verge of collapsing, but officials believe there are no structural integrity issues.
A witness told the Boston 25 News that the crash sounded “like a bomb went off.”
“We saw several people who should have seen a doctor but they didn’t want to go over because they knew other people were critical,” Lynne Goyuk said.
Emily McKenna said she heard glass breaking “and
Everyone ran to the window thinking it was an impact and there was just a gaping hole in the middle of the Apple Store.
“I didn’t see the car go by but someone said it was going pretty fast so maybe he just lost control.”
