    YARMOUTH, Mass. - A motorcycle and Yarmouth police cruiser collided Monday on Route 28 near the Barnstable town line.

    The crash happened in heavy traffic around 4:15 p.m. 

    Yarmouth Police said the initial investigation indicates the motorcyclist was passing a number of cars on the right side shoulder area and collided with a police cruiser that was trying to turn left into a service station.

    The motorcyclist was taken to Cape Cod Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
