From the West Barnstable Fire Department:
Van Impaled By Guardrail:
Yesterday the WBFD responded to this crash on RT 6 East at Exit 6.
The guardrail passed through the engine compartment, through the passenger seat and into the cargo area of the van.
The driver was taken to Cape Cod Hospital with minor injuries.
This kind of crash was common 40 years ago, but is highly unusual today with modern guardrail and vehicle engineering.
