COHASSET — Police Chief William Quigley reports that the Cohasset Police Department responded to a serious crash on Route 3A Tuesday involving a motorcycle and a motor vehicle.
At approximately 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12, Cohasset Police and Cohasset Fire responded to multiple 911 calls for reports of a crash involving a motorcycle and an SUV at the intersection of Route 3A and Sohier Street. Callers were reporting the motorcycle operator was stuck underneath the SUV and had severe injuries.
First arriving officers aided the motorcycle operator while Cohasset Fire members used hydraulic tools to lift the SUV off the operator, who was identified as a 24-year-old Scituate man. He was treated on scene for life-threatening injuries by paramedics from the Cohasset and Hingham Fire departments.
He was transported to an area hospital by ambulance and later transferred to a Boston area hospital.
The driver of the SUV, a 58-year-old man from Dorchester, was transported to an area hospital with injuries that were not believed to be serious.
The crash is under investigation by Cohasset Police and the Massachusetts State Police Crash and Reconstruction Section (CARS). No charges have been filed, and speed is not believed to be a factor in this crash.
A section of Route 3A between Lower King Street and Stop and Shop was closed for about three hours while police investigated the crash. Police from Hingham assisted with detouring traffic while crews were on scene.
