Three vehicles — a minivan, a pickup truck, and a large commercial truck — were involved in the accident, said Pauley. Officials went to the scene at the intersection of Route 6 and Kerouach Road at 8:29 a.m., said a Wellfleet police spokeswoman.

Harrison, driving the minivan, was traveling south on Route 6 when she veered into the northbound lane, colliding with the commercial truck, owned by R.W. Townsend & Sons, Wellfleet police said in a statement. The minivan then continued traveling in the northbound lane and struck the pickup.

Both lanes of Route 6 were closed for four hours, police said. The southbound lane remain closed for two more hours while crews waited for a crane, needed to lift the commercial truck onto a flatbed tow truck.
