A single-vehicle crash at the Bourne Bridge Rotary resulted in two people being transported to an area hospital. Both had non-life-threatening injuries.
Bourne Assistant Fire Chief David S. Pelonzi said firefighters responded to the scene at 11:20 AM on Thursday, October 14. Asst. Chief Pelonzi said a box truck rolled over into the median containing the Cape Cod bushes.
Two occupants, both males, were inside the truck when it crashed, Asst. Chief Pelonzi said. One person managed to exit the truck before firefighters arrived. Another person was still inside upon arrival of the fire department, he said.
Assistance was requested from the Sandwich and Joint Base Cape Cod fire departments, Asst. Chief Pelonzi said. Firefighters were able to remove the person still inside the truck without resorting to mechanical devices, he said.
Bourne firefighters transported one victim, and Sandwich firefighters transported the other; both went to Falmouth Hospital, Asst. Chief Pelonzi said. Each had non-life-threatening injuries, he said.
The assistant chief said there was a small amount of oil spilled because of the crash, but the spill was quickly mitigated. Bourne firefighters were on scene for approximately 40 minutes, he said.
Massachusetts State Police spokesman Brandon Doherty said troopers also responded to the scene. Trooper Doherty said state police conducted traffic control. Troopers were on scene until 2:25 PM, at which time all debris from the crash had been removed and all lanes were reopened, Trooper Doherty said.
No charges have been filed yet, as the cause of the crash remains under investigation, Trooper Doherty said.
