Police received a 7:52 a.m. report of a motorcycle crash at West Shore Drive and Cornell Road.

A 10:24 a.m. report of a man “who has fallen into the water and is hanging off a boat” in Marblehead Harbor resulted in police and the Fire Department responding to the area, where they later determined the man was actually a diver “hired to clean the bottoms of boats.”
