A car crash in Cohasset Thursday night, at the end of the evening commute, shut down Route 3A in Cohasset and sent seven people to South Shore hospital with minor injuries, according to Police Lieutenant William Quigley.

A preliminary investigation shows that a Chevy Tahoe with one adult and 6 children inside was t-boned by an Infiniti SUV at the intersection of Route 3A and Beachwood Street. Lt. Quigley says that the Tahoe flipped over in the intersection.

The Tahoe was driven by a 38-year-old female from Hingham. The driver of the Infiniti, a 44-year-old female from Cohasset, will be issued a citation for failure to stop for a red light.
