Truro, Massachusetts – June 9, 1944 

     Very little information was released about this accident. 

     On June 9, 1944, a navy pilot and enlisted man were critically injured when their aircraft struck a power cable in north Truro and crashed into the water just off shore.  Both were transported to Provincetown for treatment by a civilian doctor.  A navy doctor from the Squantum Naval Air Station was sent for to determine if the men could be safely moved to the Chelsea Naval Hospital. 

     The name of the men and the type of aircraft were not released.
