August 6, 2009 – Angela Champ. 19, from Harwich, Massachusetts, died yesrday from serious personal injuries sustained in a car accident on a notoriously dangerous stretch of Route 6 near the Orleans town line. Champ’s 1996 Toyota Camry crossed the center line and collided with a 2004 Chrysler minivan driven by Warren Hayes, 79 also from Harwich. Hayes’ wife Barbara was a passenger in the minivan.
