A multi-car accident in Eastham Friday afternoon sent one person to the hospital with serious injuries.
Fire and Rescue arrived at the scene on Route 6 in front of Peter’s Real Estate near Oak Road around noon-time, and found one of the drivers trapped inside their vehicle.
Rescuers used the Jaws of Life to free the victim, 26-year-old Peter Nyugen, who was suffering from serious injuries; he was taken to Wellfleet for a Med Flight to Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Traffic was slowed in the area while officials cleared the scene.
The cause of the accident is under investigation by Eastham Police and the Cape Cod Regional Law Enforcement Council Crash Reconstruction Team, however a preliminary investigation reveals the victim’s car was attempting to make a left turn onto Route 6 from Oak Road when it was struck by another vehicle.
