• Dennis motorcycle crash victim remembered fondly


    DENNIS, Mass. (AP) — The victim of a deadly motorcycle crash in Dennis is being remembered as a valued co-worker and loyal friend.

    Police identified the victim of the Tuesday night crash as 21-year-old Austin Jacobs of Brewster.

    Police say he was headed east on Route 6A at about 10:30 p.m. when he lost control, crossed into the westbound lane and went onto the woods. He died at the hospital.

    Jacobs was a valued employee of the Dennis Department of Public Works, Assistant Director Greg Rounseville told the Cape Cod Times (http://bit.ly/14aSPVG ).
