UPDATE – MPD MEDIA STATEMENT 10/10/21: On 10-09-21 at approximately 10:23 P.M., the Mashpee Police Department received a report of a single vehicle motor vehicle accident on Great Oak Road in the area of Quinn’s Way.

The male passenger was transported to Falmouth Hospital and later transported via- med-flight to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston with what did appear to be life threatening injuries. The driver was transported to South Shore Hospital in Weymouth with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.
