Driver killed in Marstons Mills crash
- One person was killed when their vehicle struck a tree in Marstons Mills early Sunday morning. Rescuers were called to Route 28 by Staysail Circle just west of Route 149 about 2:15 AM. 19-year old Caitlyn Roberts of Falmouth was pronounced dead. A Medflight helicopter was requested for her passenger but couldn't respond due to weather conditions so 21-year old Stuart Corrway also of Falmouth was rushed to Cape Cod Hospital and later transferred to Brigham & Woman's Hospital in Boston in critical condition.

SUV recovered from water in Yarmouth
- Anxious moments when a vehicle is spotted submerged in the water off Wilbur Park in Yarmouth by the High Bank Road Bridge on the Dennis/Yarmouth town line.
