Eastham woman dies in head-on collision in Wellfleet


WELLFLEET, Mass. ( – An Eastham woman is dead following a head-on car crash that occurred at the intersection of Route 6 and Old Truro Road in Wellfleet Saturday night.

Officers responded to the two-car crash at about 8:18 p.m. When crews arrived, one of the drivers, 65-year-old Sharon Sullivan, was in critical condition. A medical helicopter was called to the scene, but upon its arrival Sullivan was pronounced dead.

The driver of the other car, 83-year-old Virginia Souza, and a passenger, 88-year-old Manuel Souza, both of Truro, were transported to a Cape Cod hospital.

Following an initial investigation it is believed Sullivan was driving southbound on Route 6 when she crossed over into the northbound lane hitting Souza's car head-on.

Route 6 in that area was closed for approximately two hours during the investigation.

The crash remains under investigation.
