MATTAPOISETT — A two-vehicle collision May 15 near Mattapoisett’s Salty the Seahorse landmark briefly slowed traffic in the town’s busiest intersection.

Two pickup trucks crashed within the intersection of North Street and Route 6 Wednesday afternoon. Neither of the two people involved suffered injuries, according to Mattapoisett Fire Chief Andrew Murray.

The two vehicles were towed out of the intersection between 1 and 1:30 p.m. as police guided traffic and firefighters cleaned the crash site.

“The biggest hazard was cleaning up debris and getting the roadways opened back up, handling traffic,” Murray said.
