Three People Hurt In Car Crash At Bourne Bridge
By: Michael J. Rausch
A car crash at the Bourne Bridge during Monday morning’s rain-soaked rush hour sent three people to the hospital. The crash occurred just before 8 AM and backed traffic up for miles on both sides of the bridge, as well the roads leading to the bridge rotary, for more than hour.
Rescuers were called to the off-Cape side of the bridge at 7:58 AM, after a Toyota Camry headed on-Cape swerved across the median and hit an oncoming Jeep Cherokee.
State police identified the driver of the Camry as 39-year-old David H. Tomaszewski of Lakeville. Two people inside the Cherokee were identified as 60-year-old John J. Sullivan and 58-year-old Debra P. Sullivan, both of Cromwell, Connecticut.
Bourne Deputy Fire Chief Joseph J. Carrara said that it appeared Mr. Tomaszewski hydroplaned, lost control and slammed into the Jeep. Mr. Carrara said that Bourne EMTs transported all three victims to Tobey Hospital with what he described as “serious, but non-life threatening injuries.”
Bourne Police Lieutenant Richard E. Tavares said that state police were in charge of the accident scene, with Bourne police assisting with traffic control.
Both cars were towed from the scene. Mr. Carrara described the damage to the Jeep as "heavy front end damage." He said that the Toyota also suffered front-end damage, with "severe damage to the passenger side."
State police said that the accident is under investigation.
