HINGHAM — A driver was arrested early Friday morning for operating under the influence of alcohol after hitting a bicyclist at a Hingham intersection, police said.

At 12:38 a.m., Hingham Police officers responded to a crash involving an SUV and a bicycle at the intersection of Otis St., Downer Ave. and Daley Rd.

Upon arrival, they found the 39-year-old bicyclist with serious but non-life-threatening injuries on Daly Rd.

The Hingham Fire Paramedics transported the injured bicyclist to South Shore Hospital.

The SUV driver was not injured in the incident.

The SUV, a 2009 Cadillac Escalade with front-end damage, was towed from the scene.

The investigation revealed that the bicyclist had been riding north on Otis St. and the SUV was traveling west when the SUV, which had a stop sign, failed to yield the right of way at Downer Ave. and collided with the bicyclist.

Following the on-scene investigation, Marcia Durant Way, 59, of Hingham, was arrested and charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, negligent operation, and failure to slow/yield.

Way was subsequently released on personal recognizance and is scheduled for arraignment on April 26 at Hingham District Court.
