Centerville Car Accident Attorney Steven T. Snow understands all to well that wintertime weather on Cape Cod can create treacherous driving conditions and inevitably lead to an uptick in winter-related car accidents and pedestrian accidents. Centerville, one of the seven villages that make up Barnstable, Massachusetts is no exception.
Though Centerville is small in comparison to some of the surrounding towns throughout the Cape, they have already seen their share of serious car accidents this year, including a car crash back in January which took out a utility pole over at the intersection of Phinney’s Lane and Great Marsh Road, just up the street from Centerville Pie Company (beloved by Oprah Winfrey!) on Falmouth Road/Route 28. The driver was taken to Cape Cod Hospital, treated and released. Just about an hour later a second car crash happened on the corner of Gleneagle Drive and Old Stage Road. Two people were pulled from that wreck and taken to the hospital as well.
If you’re in any type of auto-related or pedestrian accident, report it to the local authorities and the insurance companies for all parties involved. Document the details of the occurrence and anyone involved by getting all driver license, vehicle and insurance information. Take pictures of the accident scene and surrounding area. If you require the help of an Attorney, these details will be instrumental and in your favor. Do not delay, make a call to arrange a FREE CONSULTATION with Cape Cod lawyer, Steven T.

Snow Day Gone Bad
Teenagers, cars and snow are a recipe for disaster as evidenced by another calamity in Centerville during one the latest series of Nor’easter storms. ‘Boys will be boys’ is evidenced when a pack of 17-year-olds decided to tie a sled to the back of one of their parent’s SUVs and pull each other around the neighborhood. Two of the boys’ parents were aware of the antics, provided the vehicle and filmed the tomfoolery – most likely for viral posting on Facebook, YouTube or Instagram. “The idea to sled behind a vehicle shows a serious lack of judgment,” claims Cape Cod Car Accident Lawyer Steven T. Snow.
Though they weren’t driving excessively fast, some of the roads were glazed with slick ice. The fun all came to an end when one of the boys lost control on the ice, slid off the road and collided with a tree. Stunned, the parents and other boys rushed over to see if the boy was hurt. Although his injuries did not appear to be major, he was considerably shaken, and an ambulance was called to err on the side of caution.
Despite the boy’s ability to engage in seemingly normal conversation with the police and EMT’s, he was diagnosed with a minor concussion and taken to the Trauma Center at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth. Further investigation revealed he had minor fractures on his vertebrae in the lower lumbar spine. Fortunately, he recovered quickly and there were no legal ramifications.
