Two drivers were cited following a car versus scooter crash Sept. 24 that ended with a 35-year-old Buzzards Bay man being medflighted to Rhode Island Hospital.

The crash occurred at approximately 7:30 p.m. in front of Wendy’s on Cranberry Highway.

Police said David Desantis was traveling south on Cranberry Highway when Cameron McPartmand, 21, of Wellfleet, made a left hand turn into the Wendy’s parking lot and hit Desantis, who appeared to suffer a broken leg as a result.

Police cited McPartmand for failure to use care when making the turn and Desantis received a citation for operating the scooter with a revoked driver’s license.

Police are also investigating if Desantis was driving the scooter with its headlights on or not.

Hopefully a speedy recovery for the rider on the scooter. Was the vehicle turning left out of Wendy's ?

Another boondoggle that the State could fix, but won't! Talk, talk, talk....while accident after accident happens. Guess we are just all waiting for a few more to be dead before we start construction, or start talking about construction again. Pedestrians and motorcycle riders can definitely get killed easily. Our State Rep and Senator are nowhere to be found on this issue. Again, "talk" about helping Wareham....but when the shovel meets the dirt, it's happening elsewhere and not where it's needed here.

Sorry, but this specific incident has nothing to do with the state or rep.  There is a sign that specifically states no left turn at Wendy's, yet people consistently ignore it.

Should the road have something done about it?  Yes....but until people read the signs, follow the rules of the road, stop texting and the distracted driving and SLOW down there will continue to be accidents.  The State can pump millions of money and resources into roadwork, but it's up to drivers and pedestrians to be responsible.

the article wording states the driver was making a left hand turn INTO not out of the Wendy's parking lot.
