Two people died and a third person was injured in a three-vehicle crash in Bourne this afternoon that forced the closure of a heavily traveled road for hours.
Local and state police were called at about 4:30 p.m. to the crash, which was just east of the Gallo Ice Arena on Route 6A, also known as Sandwich Road, said Trooper Eric Benson, a State Police spokesman.
The driver of a 2004 white box truck was pronounced dead at the scene, while a passenger was sent to nearby Tobey Hospital in Wareham with serious injuries, Benson said.
Also pronounced dead at the scene was the driver of a 1989 Ford Bronco, Benson said. The driver of the third vehicle, a 2006 Subaru Tribeca sport utility vehicle, was uninjured.
No further details were immediately available on the crash, Benson said.
Local and state police shut down the roadway between the Bourne Rotary and the Mid Cape Connector for several hours as they investigated the crash.
