A driver was charged Tuesday with plowing his Toyota into a Massachusetts Apple store, fatally striking one person and injuring more than a dozen others in an incident he described as an accident.

Bradley Rein made his first court appearance in Hingham District Court, where he was arraigned on counts of felony motor vehicle homicide by reckless driving and misdemeanor reckless driving.

Rein claims his right foot got stuck on the car's accelerator and that he tried unsuccessfully to break using his left foot, court documents say. A not guilty plea was submitted for Rein by the court.

Judge Heather Bradley set his bail at $100,000. Rein is also prohibited from driving while the case is underway and must ask permission to leave the state.

He is due back in court Dec. 22.

Rein was arrested Monday, hours after his 2019 Toyota 4Runner barreled into the Apple Store in Hingham, about 15 miles outside of Boston, the Plymouth County district attorney's office said. The vehicle busted through the shop's glass window and struck several shoppers.

Kevin Bradley, 65, of New Jersey, was identified as the victim who died.

Apple said its "devastated by the shocking events at Apple Derby Street today and the tragic loss of a professional who was onsite supporting recent construction at the store."

The storefront on Tuesday still had a gaping hole left by the crash. Apple said the location would remain closed until further notice.
