Six injured in head-on crash in Bourne

Six people were injured on Friday in a 2-car crash in Bourne.

At around 5:30 p.m., police received report of a two-car head-on crash on the Scenic Highway east of the Bourne Scenic Park entrance. 

Police say a Toyota Camry, with five men inside, was driving west when the driver lost control as the car went around a bend. The Camry struck a Toyota Corolla that was going in the opposite direction, police said. 

Police say the Camry was traveling too fast for the snowy, wet conditions. 

One of the injured passengers inside the Camry fled the scene before officers arrived, according to police. Police later found the passenger in a nearby housing development with minor injuries. 

The remaining four Camry passengers suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to hospitals for treatment. 

The driver of the Corolla, a 34-year-old Marshfield man, was also taken to a hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. 

Police say alcohol, speed and weather conditions contributed to the crash. 

All of the Camry’s occupants will face charges of being a minor in possession of alcohol and possession of an open container of alcohol in a car, police said. 

The 18-year-old Camry driver will face charges of DUI, negligent operation of a car, minor transporting alcohol, failing to stay within marked lanes and speeding. 

All of the Camry’s occupants are Sandwich residents under 21 years old, police said.
