This time a Comcast truck with cherry picker was traveling south down Route 39 from Orleans and swerved to miss a BMW sedan, ending up in the Peterson front yard.  Michael Lear, 33, of Boston will be charged with failing to yield at Pleasant Bay Road and Route 39. 

Driving this black BMW, he pulled out in front of this Comcast truck causing the truck to swerve and hit a tree.   Above on left, the BMW drives off, and on right,  Sgt.
