5 Injured in Sandwich, MA, Bus Accident on Quaker Meeting House

Sandwich, MA -- May 2, 2017, three children and two teens were injured due to an accident where a bus and a pickup crashed on Quaker Meeting House Road.

Authorities from the Sandwich Police Department responded to the accident scene at around 3:45 p.m. They say that it took place at the intersection of Quaker Meeting House Road and Oak Crest Cove.

Preliminary information indicates that two teenagers, ages 17 and 14, were in a pickup traveling southbound on Quaker Meeting House behind a truck. The truck slowed down to make a turn, and the 17-year-old reportedly veered into oncoming traffic to avoid hitting the truck.
