Three-car accident on Route 6 in Eastham Wednesday, three transported to hospital
EASTHAM - There was a three-car accident near Brackett Road around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday. All three vehicles were traveling north on Route 6 when one of the operators apparently became distracted and failed to stay in marked lanes.
Apparently, a brown 1998 Toyota Camry, driven by 35-year-old Zoe Giordano of Provincetown, failed to stay in marked lanes causing the three-car accident. The other vehicles involved were a 1997 Oldsmobile and a 2000 Chevy. Upon arrival, police discovered the Chevy resting on the driver's side with two individuals still strapped inside.
Eastham Fire Department personnel freed the trapped operator and passenger from the Chevy. Orleans and Wellfleet ambulances also responded to the scene. Of the five people involved in the accident (including two from Warrensburg, NY and two for Eastham), three were transported to Cape Cod Hospital with unknown injuries.
The accident remains under investigation by Eastham Police.

Mall melee suspect held on $50,000 cash bail
A stabbing suspect in the Aug. 9 brawl at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis was arraigned on felony charges Wednesday in Barnstable District Court.
Christian Chapman, 18, of Pitcher's Way in Hyannis, was held in lieu of $50,000 cash bail.
Following the brawl, a warrant was issued for Chapman's arrest. A fugitive task force of federal marshals and New York and New Jersey police found and arrested Chapman Aug. 20 at an apartment in Queens, N.Y.
Chapman waived extradition and was brought back to the Cape by Barnstable police.
He faces charges of armed assault with intent to murder, using a knife, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
The victim alleged attacked by Chapman nearly died from his wounds, which included a punctured lung and the severing of an artery that brings blood to the heart.
Judge Joan Lynch set Chapman's bail at $50,000. According to court papers, bail was required because of the nature and circumstance of the alleged offense, the potential penalty, and Chapman's failure to appear at a prior court proceeding.
The bail dwarfs that required of another suspect in the mall brawl, Dino J. Tillman, who faces bail of $10,000.
Chapman is next scheduled to appear in court for a pre-trial conference on Sept. 17.
If convicted, Tillman and Chapman could face state prison sentences.
