Osterville – Barnstable Police are looking for the driver of a Jeep Wrangler who took off after rear-ending a vehicle on Route 28. The woman operating the vehicle that was struck was sent to Cape Cod Hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. (Cape Wide News is reporting that two people were actually taken to CCH for evaluation… that has not been officially confirmed yet…)
The Jeep Wrangler was last seen fleeing towards Mashpee along Route 28. The Jeep was said to have oversized tires and a black top. It should also have front end damage.
The collision slowed traffic in both directions…
The accident is under investigation by Patrolman Steve Everett.
Anyone with information regarding the identity of the hit and run driver is urged to contact the Barnstable Police at 508-775-0387.
