Cape Cod Incidents/CWN

MASHPEE – Officials are investigating after a man was reportedly found trapped under a golf cart in Mashpee in an apparent tragic accident. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene on a trail off Quashnet Road Monday morning. Mashpee Police and Mass State Police detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s office are investigating the incident.

On Tuesday, Mashpee Police Chief Scott Carline told Cape Wide News that on Monday at approximately 7:40 A.M., the department received a report of a missing person possibly in the John’s Pond area of Mashpee. After a brief search the male party was located and tragically, found deceased in a wooded area. The incident is under investigation by the Mashpee Police Department, members of the Massachusetts State Police Detectives Unit and the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office. Although it would be inappropriate to comment further while this is still an active investigation, at this point it does appear this was a tragic accident and our deepest condolences go out to the family members of the deceased individual.

CWN has reached out to the D.A.s office for comment.
