Updated: Slippery conditions likely contributed to crash that critically injured two Upper Cape Tech students

BOURNE – Light snow and freezing precipitation was enough to make roads slippery and cause a number of crashes Tuesday morning. The most serious occurred in Bourne on MacArthur Boulevard (Route 28) at Jonathan Bourne Drive. Two people were trapped after their vehicle struck a tree. The victims were extricated and taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

Update: Bourne Police tell Cape Wide News that at approximately 7:19 AM, they responded to a motor vehicle crash on MacArthur Blvd/Rt 28 North, north of Barlow’s Landing Road. The crash involved a Toyota Tacoma that had slid off the roadway into a tree. The operator and passenger, ages 14 and 17, are students at the Upper Cape COd Regional Technical School. The Bourne Fire Department used mechanical means to free the two students. Both were transported to Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Rhode Island with life threatening injuries. The crash remains under investigation. The roads were being treated, but were icy at the time of the crash.
