Apr 28, 2020

ROCHESTER — Four people were transported to Tobey Hospital to be treated for injuries after two cars collided on April 27 at the intersection of County Road and Cranberry Highway in front of Seasons Corner Market.

The extent of the injuries from the crash and conditions of those involved are unknown. 

Rochester and Wareham Police Departments responded to a call about the crash at about 11:21 a.m.

According to the police report, a man arrived at a red light, but was unable to see the traffic signal because something was obstructing his view. He began to cross the intersection when his  front seat passenger notified him of the red light. By the time the car was in the intersection, the police report said that a crash was “unavoidable.”

When the vehicles collided, the car in the intersection, which also had two occupants, crossed into the yard of 856 County Road, narrowly missing light and utility poles.

All four people were transported to Tobey Hospital by Wareham EMS and treated for injuries.

The accident slowed traffic through the intersection, and police had to manually direct cars while the two vehicles were towed. By noon, police had left the scene and the accident had been cleared.

The owner of 856 County Road also reported lawn damage from the tires of the car.
