Man charged after crashing SUV into Apple store

A Massachusetts court Tuesday charged Bradley Rein, 53, with motor vehicle homicide by reckless operation. On Monday, he crashed his SUV into an Apple store, killing one person and injuring 19. Rein is being held on a $100,000 bail and his next court date will be Dec. 22. The court issued a not-guilty plea on his behalf. Apple released a statement saying the deceased person was a professional supporting recent construction at the store.

What has Rein said? Rein said he was looking for an eyeglass store when his right foot got stuck on the accelerator in his 2019 Toyota 4Runner. He tried to brake using his left foot, but it didn’t slow down the car. Documents show he was wearing running shoes. Rein told police he had no medical issues that would impair driving and was not using drugs or alcohol. A breath test showed no indication of drinking, according to court documents.
