The Monday evening incident was the result of a failure to yield, Easton Police said. One person was transported to the hospital.
One person was transported to the hospital Monday evening after a four-car accident at the intersection of Turnpike and Purchase Street in Easton.
Easton Police Chief Allen Krajcik said a Stoughton driver failing to yield resulted in the chain reaction accident.
"Investigation by Officer Keith Boone indicates that a 2006 Buick operated by Joseph Cohen, age 18, of Jefferson Court [in] Stoughton stopped at the stop sign on Purchase Street but then failed to yield to a vehicle heading northbound on Turnpike," Krajcik said in a statement.
Cohen allegedly failed to yield to Michael Hurley of Malden.
Following the initial accident, a third vehicle heading north on Turnpike struck the rear of Hurley's vehicle, which was pushed into a fourth vehicle heading south on Turnpike.
The accident closed the intersection Monday evening and sent Michael Hurley to Brockton Hospital via the Easton Fire Department.
Cohen was cited for failure to yield, Krajcik said.
West Bridgewater assisted with the response.
