UPDATE FROM COMM FIRE – 12/16/16 – 2:00AM:
COMM Fire Department was notified via the Barnstable Police Department of a Motor Vehicle Crash with injuries. Upon arrival we discovered two mid-size four door sedans with heavy front end damage to both vehicles and airbag deployment. Jaws of Life were used to extricate a severely injured patient from one vehicle who was transported to South Shore Hospital’s Trauma Center. Med Flight was requested but was not flying due to high winds. Two other patients were transported to CCH ED.
COMM Fire Department Engine remained on scene to assist with lighting and scene cleanup while the accident was investigated. Additional ambulance was provided by Hyannis Fire Department.
Initial HN coverage:
CENTERVILLE – [DEVELOPING] – As you will see in the following raw HN footage, there was a major two vehicle crash with at least 3 people hurt this evening…
At approximately 9:30PM, Barnstable Police and COMM Firefighters rushed to the scene at Route 28 and Phinney’s Lane.
One person was seriously injured and entrapped when HN began rolling on video….
Firefighters teamed up to free the driver, prying away metal, using the jaws of life, brute strength and adrenalin…
Rescue workers inquired, but Medflight was unavailable due to poor weather conditions.
Three ambulances were called to the scene as two other patients were secured on stretchers before being rushed to local hospitals. (Check back for more details on the patients’ conditions…)
Route 28 needed to be completely shut down until about midnight to secure what one police Lieutenant referred to as a “crime scene…”
The frigid wind was howling, blowing accident crime scene evidence and debris across the roadway…
An accident reconstruction expert was called in from the Yarmouth Police Department.
This is a very active and developing accident scene and investigation.

HN NOTE: The winds were so violent they blew the “dead cat” off one of my external microphones, which forced me to switch to a backup mic… and this is the reason why there is a lot of wind interference. Also, because of the backup mic system, you can hear parts of a phone conversation where I’m reporting details from the scene…
