Car vs pole and trees on Route 134 South Dennis

     Dennis paramedics work to free the victim of a single-car crash on Route 134.
SOUTH DENNIS - Around 5:20 p.m. Sunday, an older-model four-door Saturn sedan was headed south on Route 134 when its driver failed to negotiate a curve just south of Dennis Equipment Company. The vehicle, reported by a witness to be traveling at a high rate of speed, crossed the road and slammed into a utility pole on the east side of 134. The force of the collision spun the car sidewise and it came to rest wedged between two oak trees. Both airbags deployed and one of the Saturn's wheels was thrown a short distance from the scene of the crash. Dennis paramedics worked urgently on the wreck to free the young male victim whose injuries were judged to be potentially life threatening. He was transported to Cape Cod Hospital by Dennis rescue. Dennis police are investigating. NStar was called in to inspect the damaged pole. Story and photos by Kevin Morley
