Subject: Crash Involving Pedestrians

On June 27, 2017, at approximately 11:07 PM, members of the Falmouth Police Department, Falmouth Fire Rescue Department and the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office responded to a crash involving three pedestrians in the area of 790 Teaticket Hwy. The first responding officers found an unconscious female suffering from serious injuries. She is a 22 year old and resides in East Falmouth. She was med-flighted to a Rhode Island trauma center. A second pedestrian, a 22 year old male from East Falmouth, suffered serious injuries and was transported to the Falmouth Hospital by ambulance. A third pedestrian, a 21 year old male from East Falmouth, was also struck and sustained minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation by the Falmouth Police Department and the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office. However, the initial investigation indicates that a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer was heading easterly on Teaticket Hwy. The three pedestrians were walking easterly on the side of Teaticket Hwy. The Trailblazer, which was being operated by a 26 year old man from East Falmouth, struck them as they walked along the side of the road. The operator of the vehicle stopped after the collision and was not injured.

Traffic was detoured around the crash site for about three hours but the road is now completely open.

Social Media Argument Leads to Assault. Last Sunday, two 15-year-old females were involved in an argument on Snapchat and one of them took offense to a message. As a result, the teenager went to the other teenager’s home, forced her way into the home, and assaulted the other teens’ mother in the process. The offender was charged with Assault & Battery, as well as Breaking & Entering. 17-16721-OF. ... See MoreSee Less

Helen AhearnGood. I am glad she was charged. I hope both of them learned a lesson. Rage needs to be managed better. It is ok to feel angry about something but violence is unacceptable.

Becky McCulloughTell your kids to turn Snapchat off. Apparently they've added a feature to let others know where you are and also a map to help them find you.
