- There were major delays reported during the evening commute after a crash on Route 6 eastbound past Exit 8 in Yarmouth around 4 p.m. Thursday.

1004rt62_400The driver of the tractor trailer, 60-year-old Ronald Bolic of NC, reportedly told police he served to avoid a deer.

capecodtoday photographer Pat Brooks was caught in the resulting traffic jam which extended for miles.

As she passed the wreck it was obvious that the trailer truck had done a 180 and ended in a gully in the median strip.

The busy State Troopers worked vigorously to keep gawkers moving past the scene as shown at right.

State Police cited Bolic for failing to stay in marked lanes and say additional charges are possible. Bolic was treated at CCH for minor injuries.

Fall from roof in Brewster

Police Investigate Suspicious Incidents at Bus Stops in Yarmouthport
- On Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. a school bus driver notified the Yarmouth Police Department that a student had reported a suspicious man at her bus stop.

Yarmouth Police School Resource Officer William P. Coughlan, assigned to the Mattacheese Middle School, met with the student and subsequently obtained information that may indicate two separate incidents.

The first incident occurred on Tuesday, October 2nd at approximately 3:00 p.m. at the after school bus stop at the intersection of White Rock Road and Freeman Road in Yarmouthport. This incident involved a man approaching her and waving his hand at her in a ‘come here' type of motion.

The second incident occurred Wednesday morning at approximately 7:20 a.m. at a bus stop on German Hill Road in Yarmouthport. This incident involved a man in a truck driving up to a student and asking for help finding his dog.

In both incidents, information is somewhat vague and neither incident involved any physical touching or attempts. General description of suspect (subject to adjustment): white male, balding, 40-60 years of age, operating a green sports utility vehicle or a white pickup truck with cap on back.

Both incidents are currently under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Yarmouth Police Department Detective Eric H. Nuss at 508-775-0445 extension 132.

As a reminder-the Yarmouth Police Department-in conjunction with the Freemasons of Massachusetts-and the American Dental Association, is conducting a free child identification program at the Yarmouth Seaside Festival Fairgrounds this Saturday, October 6th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

General Child Crime Prevention Tips

• Explain to your child that a stranger is someone they do not know, nor do you.

• Never take a ride from a stranger.

• Teach your child that adults usually do not ask children for directions or help in finding something like a lost animal. If someone should stop in a car asking directions or help in finding a lost animal, tell your child not to go to the car.
