Lt. Kevin Huck of the Yarmouth Fire Department said the crash involved three smaller vehicles which sent one into a support pole, snapping it just after 4 p.m.

Fire crews transported two of the drivers to Cape Cod Hospital with injuries described as non life-threatening.

The third driver was treated for minor injuries at the scene and refused to be taken to the hospital.

The road was reopened around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Yarmouth Police Department.

Interviewed Wednesday evening, Huck said that the pole had not been replaced yet, but because it is a support pole with no live power lines, he does not expect the pole to be replaced until Thursday.
