A two-car crash occurred at the intersection of Franklin Street and Center Street in Vineyard Haven on Friday afternoon. A red Jeep collided with the front right side of a gray Honda Civic with Connecticut license plates and both vehicles ended up side-by-side on Center Street.
Tisbury Police Chief Chris Habekost told the Times the Honda driver was pulling out of Center Street and “failed to yield to oncoming traffic,” which is how the Jeep driver that was traveling southbound on Franklin Street hit the car.
Members of the Tisbury Police Department and Tisbury Fire Department responded to the crash, closing off Center Street and Franklin Street — up to its intersection with Church Street — to traffic until the vehicles could be moved.
Habekost said neither of the drivers was injured and nobody needed to be sent to the hospital. The Honda driver was given a courtesy transport to an address in Tisbury.
