Today at approximately 2:45pm, Troopers from the Massachusetts State Police South Yarmouth Barracks responded to a report of a wrong way operator and subsequent crash, on Rt.6 West in the area of Exit 8 in Yarmouth. The crash resulted in three parties being transported to Cape Cod Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. These included a 84 year-old male from Chatham, a 54 year-old male from Harwich and a 56 year-old female from Wakefield. Troopers were assisted at the scene by the Yarmouth Fire Department and the Dennis Police Department. The westbound lanes were closed for approximately one hour to aid in the investigation. Initial reports that an operator had fled the scene were unfounded. All operators involved in the crash were present at the scene and are accounted for. The facts and circumstances of the crash remain under investigation and no charges have been filed at this time.
No further information is available at this time. Please do not call the barracks directly.
