Two injured in Falmouth crash

Airbags and seat belts likely prevented serious injury in this crash in Falmouth.
FALMOUTH - A two-vehicle crash at Shore Street and Clinton Avenue about 5:30 p.m. sent two drivers to Falmouth Hospital with injuries that were not life threatening. A Toyota Camry driven by 74-year old Janice Goodell of Falmouth struck a Jeep Cherokee driven by 41-year old John Warner also of Falmouth at the intersection, turning the Jeep on its roof and leaving the Camry on the lawn of the house just beyond the crash scene. Both drivers were transported to Falmouth Hospital by Falmouth Fire/Rescue. It appears the drivers escaped serious injury due to the use of seat belts and deployment of air bags in both vehicles. The intersection remained completely blocked for about 40 minutes while the crash was investigated by Falmouth PD who cited Goodell for failing to stop at a stop sign.

Driver loses control on Sea Street narrowly missing two houses

   A Chevy Coupe hit a small oak tree that prevented the car from crossing the road and possibly hitting  a house.
DENNISPORT - Around 5:51 p.m. Monday Dennis rescue was dispatched to the intersection of Sea Street and Cross Street in Dennisport for a single-vehicle crash. The driver, alone in the car, was thought to have suffered a medical condition that caused him to lose control as he headed northbound on Sea Street toward Route 28. It appears that the Chevy Cavalier swerved to the right, crashed through a fence, just missed a house and proceeded for approximately another 100 feet before striking a small oak tree. The tree prevented the vehicle from traveling through Cross Street and possibly ramming into another house on the opposite corner. The driver, reportedly a middle-aged male, was transported to Cape Cod Hospital by Dennis rescue. Dennis police are investigating the cause of the accident. (Story and photos by Kevin Morley/CWN).
