Pittsfield man admits crashing into homes, cars on Elm Street


PITTSFIELD -- A Pittsfield man turned himself in at police headquarters on Wednesday morning after allegedly crashing into two parked cars and a home on Elm Street and fleeing.

Garrett Casey, 22, walked into the police station with his father Wednesday afternoon and admitted to the incident, said Pittsfield Police Captain John Mullin.

Casey allegedly was behind the wheel of a 2014 Mercedes Benz that ran a stop sign at Holmes Road and Elm Street about 12:40 a.m., went over a snow bank, struck two parked cars and two homes.

Damage estimates were not available, but siding was torn off both of the homes, and one also appeared to have some structural damage.

One of the vehicles struck was a 2002 Lexus, which had to be towed. The other vehicle, a 2008 GMC Sierra pickup, was not towed.

Casey suffered minor injuries from the accident, Mullin said.

No charges had been filed as of 3 p.m., Mullin said. The case is under investigation.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to contact police officer Miles Barber at (413) 448-9700, ext. 362.
