DEVELOPING: Multiple people were killed and several injured Wednesday when a jeep sped through a crowded auto auction in a small Massachusetts town, authorities said.
The crash happened around 10:30 a.m. at LynnWay Auto Auction in Billerica, about 20 miles northwest of Boston, Fox affiliate WFXT-TV reported.
Officials have not yet confirmed the number of fatalities or injuries at the scene.
Witnesses described seeing the vehicle "speeding up through the auction" and said it appeared to have been an accident, according to local reports

One witness is claiming that the driver avoided parked cars and seemed to aim for people. That is troubling if its accurate.
“(The driver) avoided the cars, and went on to hit the people who were standing between the cars," Tuttle said. "Three (men) were on the ground being tended to. There was a woman who was crying, but she was standing up, and I saw two men on the ground who appeared to be dead."
