A two-vehicle accident led one car to flip onto its roof in Oak Bluffs on Sunday afternoon. 

According to Massachusetts State Police Trooper James DeAngelis, the two vehicles involved in the crash were a 2022 Honda CRV driven by a 32-year-old Edgartown woman and a 1999 Toyota Corolla driven by a 33-year-old Medford woman with a 5-year-old female passenger. The accident took place around 4:30 pm on New York Avenue at Winemack Street. 

“All three parties were transported to an area hospital for treatment for minor injuries,” DeAngelis wrote. 

DeAngelis told The Times that both vehicles were towed from the scene, and the Honda driver was cited for motor vehicle–related offenses, although he did not specify what alleged charges were made. Information on which vehicle rolled onto its hood was also not readily available. DeAngelis said more information may be available after a crash report has been completed and approved, which can take up to 10 days. 

Emergency personnel were leaving the scene a little after 5 pm when a Times reporter arrived. 

Oak Bluffs Police cruisers blocked traffic at Temahigan Avenue and where New York Avenue meets Towanticut Avenue. 

When reached for comment, Oak Bluffs Police Chief Jonathan Searle referred The Times to the Massachusetts State Police. “We responded and assisted,” Searle said. “As it was on a state highway and the MSP showed up, they took the investigation.” 


  1. I don’t understand how this is newsworthy. Why not wait until you have all the facts before reporting on the story
