The injured were taken to Cape Cod hospital by ambulance to be treated. Their injuries, although serious, do not appear to be life-threatening. Harwich police officers are handling the accident investigation. Firefighters from the Brewster and Chatham Fire Departments also assisted with investigation on scene.
