3 passenger cars and mail truck involved in crash
A four-vehicle crash on Cape Cod has sent nine people to the hospital, one of whom reportedly has life-threatening injuries.
The crash on Route 6 in Eastham occurred at about 6:40 p.m. Tuesday. Three passenger vehicles and mail delivery truck were involved.
Eastham Fire Chief Glenn Olson called it a “tough scene.”
The most seriously injured person had to be removed from a vehicle using the Jaws of Life. All nine patients were taken to Cape Cod Hospital.
No names were released.
Eyewitnesses tell the Cape Cod Times that the delivery truck struck a car, sending it spinning into the roadway where it was struck by the two other vehicles. They described screaming and blood-covered victims.
The crash remains under investigation.
