LENOX -- A Pittsfield woman was injured early Wednesday when the van she was driving rolled over on Pittsfield Road (Routes 7 & 20) at the intersection with West Dugway Road, according to Lenox police.
Amy Burdick, 39, of Cromwell Avenue, Pittsfield, was driving south shortly before 8:30 a.m. in a Chrysler Town and Country van when, according to witnesses, the vehicle veered onto a snowbank, according to witnesses.
The vehicle went over the curb straight through the intersection, hit a guardrail and rolled over, the accident report stated.
Lenox Police Officers William Colvin and John Willey responded to the scene at 8:28 a.m., along with Lenox Ambulance, the Fire Department and state police from the Lee barracks.
"The officers saw the van resting on its roof against a telephone pole," said Lenox Police Chief Stephen O'Brien. Several witnesses, including an EMT, were tending to the driver.
Burdick was conscious but complained of head pain, according to the Lenox Police accident report. She was treated and released, according to Berkshire Health Systems spokesman Michael Leary
No one else was in the vehicle.
Road conditions were dry, said O'Brien, and the accident remains under investigation.
"There was no indication from witnesses of speeding, texting or inattention at the wheel," O'Brien added, "but we have yet to speak to the driver."
The van was towed to Hoff's Mobil in Lenox with major damage to its front end and roof.
