y3_driver_declines_medical_attention_450Around 1:45 PM, a Chevy S-10 apparently attempted to turn left from the stop sign at Great Western Road onto Highbank Road in Yarmouth.

The maneuver failed as a Ford Ranger traveling west slammed into the turning vehicle.

The occupants of the Chevy were shaken up but apparently did not need immediate medical attention.

The driver of the Ford refused medical treatment from Yarmouth EMTs. Traffic on Highbank Road westbound was rerouted down Great Western as eastbound traffic edged by the accident scene.

Saab rear-ends tradesman’s truck on 6A in Dennis village

   As the sign behind the car says. "Regrets Only"

d3driverreflectsonacci_450The tranquility of Route 6A in Dennis Village was shattered this morning around 10:45 as a Saab sedan headed east rear-ended a tradesman’s truck making a left turn off 6A just past the Cape Playhouse entrance.

Fortunately, there were no apparent injuries suffered by the trucker or the driver and two occupants of the Saab.

The truck escaped with minor bumper damage while the Saab’s front-end was significantly impacted. 

Engine 106 from Dennis Fire Station #2 secured the accident scene while police handled the traffic build-up that quickly jammed the major route through the scenic Dennis village.

Brothers arrested with alleged stolen property
S - Two brothers were arrested by Barnstable Police after they were allegedly attempting to sell property reportedly taken in a breaking and entering a short time earlier. 26-year old Joshua Soares and his brother 24-year old Jonathan Soares were picked up at the White Hen Pantry on Route 28 Monday night reportedly trying to sell a digital camera and other items.
