A three-car accident near down-Island Cronig’s blocked off traffic around 1:40 pm, with vehicles being rerouted through the supermarket’s parking lot. The road opened up again just after 2:30 pm. Across from Vineyard Grocer, up-Island-bound traffic on State Road was diverted onto Pine Tree Road.

Tisbury’s fire, police, and EMS departments were all on scene. Absorbent material was used to soak up vehicle sizable fluid leakage on the road.

One person was transported by ambulance from the scene, according to Tisbury Fire Chief Greg Leland.
