Dennis crash; Harwich crash; Storm warnings issued for the Cape

Car vs Pickup in Dennisport

These vehicles collided at the intersection of Upper County and Telegraph Roads in Dennisport.
- Around 1:40 p.m. Saturday a Hyundai Elantra headed west in Dennisport on Upper County Road "tee-boned" a Chevy S10 pickup at the intersection of Telegraph Road. Reports at the scene indicate that the elderly male driver and sole occupant of the truck either ignored the stop sign at Upper County or, after stopping, entered the intersection without seeing the approaching sedan. The force of the collision spun the truck more than 90 degrees from its original direction of travel.

Both the pickup truck driver and the female driver and lone occupant of the sedan were transported to Cape Cod Hospital by Dennis ambulances with unknown injuries. Shortly after the crash, two youths appeared on scene and belligerently demanded to know where the driver of the pickup was. Apparently one or both of the teenagers were related to the driver of the sedan. They were warned by Dennis police to leave the scene or face possible arrest for disorderly conduct.
