According to Tisbury Police Officer John Goeckel, a Toyota Tundra that was traveling behind the Subaru was forced to stop abruptly, and a Volvo S70 that was behind the Toyota hit the rear bumper, pushing the truck into the Subaru.The Toyota and Subaru were able to be driven off the road, but the Volvo was damaged so severely that it had to be removed by a tow truck.

Airbags were deployed in the Volvo, and the operators of both the Volvo and the Toyota were taken to Martha’s Vineyard Hospital after sustaining minor injuries as a result of the accident.

Tisbury Detective Max Sherman directed traffic while the vehicles were cleared from the road.



  1. Rear end collisions are the worst. You see the car coming and there isnt anything you can do about it because there is a car in front of you. I have ptsd from rear end collisions. Slow down.
