PITTSFIELD -- Two people were transported to the hospital Tuesday afternoon after a collision that caused a car to roll onto its roof.
A woman driving a Subaru Outback about 1 p.m. attempted to turn left onto Holmes Road from Pomeroy Avenue when she pulled out into the path of a DHL Express van, police said.
The impact of the collision caused the car to flip onto its roof, trapping the woman inside. The van struck a guardrail.
Members of the Pittsfield Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to pull the driver from the Subaru. Tom Brunette, a retired EMT from Lenox, who stopped to assist responders, said the woman had multiple lacerations on her head and was complaining "about her shoulder being separated."
Both she and the driver of the van were transported to Berkshire Medical Center, but the extent of their injuries was not immediately available.
Police said the driver of the Suburu was at fault in the crash.
Traffic was diverted for more than an hour while responders worked to clear the scene.
