HINGHAM, Mass. (WHDH) – Police say one person was injured Wednesday morning in a crash involving a backhoe and car at a construction site in Hingham.

Crews responded around 10:40 a.m. to Beal Street for a report of crash and found a Lexus that had sustained significant damage.

Authorities say the driver of the Lexus turned onto Beal Street and drove into the backhoe without seeing it due to the sun’s glare. Drivers in the area told 7News that they’ve had the same problem.

“Actually coming down the same road, it’s very hard to see; uou can’t see the lights sometimes, can’t see what color they are. It’s very, very dangerous,” said one driver.

The driver of the Lexus, a 49-year-old woman from Weymouth, suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene, according to police.

Police gave the woman a civil violation.
