Top HN photo: A driver stoops over to pick up his Jeep’s front tire at a Route 6A crash scene, Sunday afternoon…. BARNSTABLE – [HN NOTES & MULLINGS ON THE MATTER] – As can be seen in the above HN photos, the Barnstable Police are investigating what caused at least one vehicle to cross over the center line and collide with an oncoming car yesterday afternoon. Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured (one driver was evaluated inside an ambulance but refused transport) and the damage appeared to reflect both vehicles being “clipped” on the driver’s side, near the front tire area. The crash happened early afternoon, on Route 6A near the intersection with Keveney Lane. The roads were wet from a steady, ongoing light rain. Heavy Sunday traffic became backed up in both directions as officers needed to stop cars, reducing the flow to one lane, intermittently in each direction. It was an all-too-common midday mess.
