Route 151 Crash October 1, 2019

Wreckage from a head-on crash litters Route 151 between Ranch Road and Boxberry Hill Road.

A driver was taken by medical helicopter to a Boston-area hospital following a head-on collision on Route 151 in Falmouth on Tuesday afternoon.

The crash involving a 2019 white Toyota RAV4 and a 2011 red Honda Accord SE occurred at 1:46 PM on the roadway, between Ranch Road and Boxberry Hill Road. The road was closed following the crash.

“One of the operators crossed the center line, the reason why is still under investigation,” Falmouth Police Lieutenant Douglas M. DeCosta said.

There was a single occupant in both cars, the drivers; both were injured in the head-on collision.

“One operator was sent via medical flight from the ball field at Ranch Road to a Boston-area hospital with a broken arm and leg,” Lt. DeCosta said. “The other operator was transported to Falmouth Hospital.”

The road has since been reopened.
