It happened as the two were apparently trying to cross the highway from the $2 T-Shirt Shop to Seabury Surf Gift Shop. One of the victims 21-year old Bethany Ferguson reportedly suffered a head injury and was taken to a field at the Nauset Regional High School in Eastham to meet a Medflight helicopter which flew her to Boston Medical Center. The other victim 16-year old Linda Sutton was taken to Cape Cod Hospital. The driver of the older model Ford Crown Victoria 80-year Lora Bumps was shaken up but not injured. Wellfleet Police are investigating the crash but it does not appear the driver was at fault. A cracked grill and broken parking light were the only signs on the vehicle of the accident which backed up traffic in both directions for a couple of miles.
