Tupper Road Crash

The wreckage of a Volvo that was involved in a serious crash Thursday morning sits in the middle of the intersection of Tupper Road and Route 6A. The utility vehicle it collided with can be seen in the background.

A two-car crash left the driver of a black Volvo XC70 station wagon in serious, but non-life-threatening condition, said Sandwich Police Lieutenant Josh Bound.

The crash occurred Thursday, July 29, at around 10:44 AM. Police said Keith Corey, 77, of South Dennis, stopped at the intersection of Route 6A and Tupper Road near the Snow Goose Gift Shop and tried to cross Route 6A traveling toward Town Neck when his car was struck on the front right passenger side of his vehicle. Jeff D. Hauck, 60, of Sandwich was traveling toward Bourne when he hit the Volvo with his Mack cement truck, police said.

Upon investigating the crash, police determined Mr. Hauck did not have time to stop and the operator of the Volvo was cited for failing to grant the right of way at an intersection.

Mr. Hauck, who owns Hauck-Cape Cod Concrete Pumping, a Sandwich business, was not injured.

The Volvo’s driver was transported via ambulance to Beth Israel Plymouth for serious, non-life-threatening injuries, Lt. Bound said. The Volvo, which sustained heavy front-end damage and a smashed windshield, was towed as was the truck, which also sustained serious damage.

The Sandwich Police were assisted on scene by the Sandwich Fire Department and assisted in the investigation by the Massachusetts State Police Commercial Vehicle Unit and the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Department’s Crime Scene Unit.
