COHASSET, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Cohasset Police Department is investigating after a multi-vehicle crash left several people injured on Friday.
According to Chief William Quigley, the department responded to the scene at around 3:20 p.m. in the area of 230 North Main St.
"Upon arrival, first responders found that there were four motor vehicles involved in the crash, including a 2020 Ford Ranger, a 2006 Lexus sedan, a 2017 Mercedes Benz sedan and a 2011 Chevrolet sedan," Quigley said in a statement.
Reports said the driver of the Ford truck, an 18-year-old Cohasset man, was speeding northbound when he veered into oncoming traffic, hitting the sedan.
The truck then also hit the Mercedes Benz, operated by a 28-year-old Hull man. The vehicle also hit a fire hydrant, which then snapped off it's base and hit the parked Chevy sedan, while it was unoccupied.
All four vehicles were towed from the scene. Police said the driver of the Lexus, a 73-year-old Cohasset woman, had to be pulled out of her car by firefighters using hydraulic extrication tools.
All three active drivers, along with a passenger in the Lexus, were taken to a local hospital. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Police are still investigating, but believe the driver was asleep behind the wheel prior to the crash.
