Yarmouth Police Seek Driver and Vehicle that Struck Pedestrian and Fled

On Monday August 22, 2016, at approximately 10:12PM Yarmouth Police and Fire Department personnel were dispatched to the area of 817 Route 6A in Yarmouthport for a report of a pedestrian being struck by a motor vehicle.

Patrol Officers Mary Gibney and Patrol Officer Mellett arrived and found a 23 year old female lying on her side being comforted by a male. They both were dressed all in black. The male subject identified himself as a friend of the victim. He stated they were walking along the road, with their back to traffic, and suddenly she was struck by a car, which continued on towards Dennis. The male was unable to note anything about the car because he immediately looked to help the victim.

Police Officers interviewed a man who was traveling behind the pair and the vehicle that struck the victim. The man stated he was about a couple of telephone poles or so behind the vehicle when he saw it jerk in its lane and then accelerate away. As he approached that location, he saw what he thought was a black trash bag, but then realized that it was a person who had been hit. He wrestled with going after the car, but decided to stay with the victim. He was only able to report that the vehicle was traveling towards Dennis and that it was a car/sedan with square taillights.

The victim who declined medical treatment stated she believed it was the front of the car that struck her. It is possible that a side mirror struck her.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to immediately contact Yarmouth Police Patrol Officer Mary Gibney at 508.775.0445 extension 2324 or email us at info@yarmouth.ma.us

There are no sidewalks in the area.

Yarmouth Police remind all pedestrians to walk FACING traffic and always wear bright clothing and carry a flashlight at night.

This media release was prepared and distributed by the Command Staff of the Yarmouth Police Department. For further information please call the Office of the Chief of Police at 508-775-0445 extension 2115 or email us at info@yarmouthpolice.com

The reconstruction of Higgins-Crowell Road in West Yarmouth in currently in progress and going very smoothly.

Higgins-Crowell Road is a major Yarmouth roadway with approximately 10 thousand of vehicles travelling it every day.

We have 4 uniformed Police Officers on detail duty at the site to assist with the protection of the workers and traffic management.

While in the initial Milling Process, the roadway is in very poor condition and we advise the public to avoid the area if possible—especially motorcyclists.

If you choose to use the roadway, please be extra cautious and expect delays.

We expect everything to continue to run smoothly and all work to be completed before school opens.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Stay SAFE out there!
