Island police reported a busy Memorial Day weekend.

In Edgartown, police responded to a two-car accident on Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road on Saturday that totaled both vehicles and sent an elderly couple to the hospital with injuries, chief Bruce McNamee said.

The accident happened when a woman driving a silver sedan accidentally pressed the accelerator instead of the brake as she approached the main road from 10th street north, the chief said. The vehicle collided with an oncoming red SUV.

The accident temporarily snarled traffic. The red vehicle came to rest on a residential property, destroying part of the wooden fence. Both airbags deployed. Edgartown EMS and fire personnel also responded. The driver of the silver sedan was charged with unlicensed operation, negligent operation and failure to stop at an intersection, the chief said.

Chief McNamee said it was a full weekend for officers in Edgartown. On Sunday, officers responded to a minor bike accident. The biker sustained scrapes but refused transport to the hospital. At midnight on Sunday, police responded to a car fire at the Clarion hotel when tools in the back of a truck caught fire. On Friday night, a man was arrested for disorderly conduct after yelling and uprooting flowers from a flower box on Main street and throwing them into the street.

Sgt. Michael Marchand in Oak Bluffs also reported a packed Memorial Day weekend with 105 incidents, most of them minor.

In Chilmark, police chief Jonathan Klarén said he had received numerous calls about seal pups on the beaches. He reminded beachgoers to leave seals alone and not to call authorities to report sightings.

“If they need to talk to someone about seals on the beach they can call the New England Aquarium,” Chief Klarén said in an email.
