One person was arrested following a three-vehicle crash near the Market Basket store in Sagamore.

Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio said that troopers arrested Elijah McKinney, 18, from Cambridge last Friday, May 15. Mr. Procopio said that troopers responded to the scene on the Mid-Cape Connector in front of the Market Basket at 9:35 AM.

Mr. Procopio said that he could not confirm early reports that the crash was the result of a road rage incident.

The vehicles involved in the incident were a 2016 Toyota RAV 4, driven by an 18-year-old male from Cambridge; a 2014 Volkswagen operated by a 17-year-old male from Duxbury; and a 2019 Ford F-150 pickup truck, driven by Mr. McKinney. The pickup he was driving was owned by U-Haul, Mr. Procopio said.

Troopers determined that Mr. McKinney was the subject of two outstanding warrants. One warrant, out of Cambridge District Court, charged him with aggravated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon; destruction of property under $1,200; and assault with a dangerous weapon.

The second warrant, out of Malden District Court, charged him with receiving a stolen motor vehicle and resisting arrest. None of the warrant charges were related to the crash on Route 6, Mr. Procopio said.

Mr. McKinney was taken into custody for the warrants and booked at the State Police barracks in Yarmouth. He was later transported to the Barnstable County Correctional Facility to be held pending a court appearance on the two warrants.

Mr. Procopio said that the state police investigation has determined that Mr. McKinney will also be summonsed to court for motor vehicle charges resulting from the Route 6 incident.

The operators of the Toyota and Volkswagen were transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth for evaluation of possible minor injuries.
