PITTSFIELD -- Two city residents remained hospitalized in critical condition over the weekend, following separate accidents on Pittsfield roads late last week.
Meanwhile, Pittsfield police say the cause of both incidents involving J. Joseph Breault and Joann Losinger remain under investigation.
Breault is recovering from a collapsed lung, broken lung and other injuries at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield. The 58-year-old owner of Jimmy's Restaurant is listed in critical condition in Baystate's intensive care unit, a hospital spokeswoman said on Sunday night.
Breault was severely hurt Friday night after crashing his motorcycle on a sharp curve along Merrill Road, just west of the Junction Road bridge.
Police say Breault's 1992 Harley-Davidson was westbound when the front tire struck the curb, throwing him from the bike, which burst into flames.
Meanwhile, Berkshire Medical Center reported Sunday evening that Losinger was still in critical condition after being struck by a Berkshire Regional Transit Authority bus on Thursday in the intersection of West and Center streets.
Witnesses have told Pittsfield police the 61-year-old woman was at the crosswalk between the Big Y supermarket and Greylock Federal Credit Union headquarters at the corner of West and Center streets around noon. Investigating officers say the victim was struck by the BRTA vehicle as it made a left-hand turn onto Center Street from West Street.
Police haven't said if the bus driver faces charges as a result of the accident.
