Slippery roads lead to accidents in Northern Berkshire


NORTH ADAMS -- Tuesday's slippery conditions led to several motor vehicle accidents across Northern Berkshire, officials say.

In North Adams, two minor accidents occured in quick succession shortly after 2 p.m..

A car slid off the road on State Road (Route 2) near the intersection with Chantilly Avenue, veering through a fence and into a swamp area. According to North Adams Fire Department Lt. Joseph Beverly, the driver escaped injury but the car was towed away.

While in response to that accident, a North Adams Ambulance Service vehicle struck a car that had pulled in front of it, according to Beverly. The car had waited for one ambulance and appeared not to see the second before it pulled out, he said.

No injuries were suffered, although the car had to be towed and the ambulance sustained minor damage, according to Beverly.

In Williamstown, a sport utility vehicle slid off of the road on Cold Spring Road (Route 7) at 3:30 p.m. The vehicle flipped over and landed on its roof in front of Mezze Bistro.

The driver suffered minor injuries, officials at the scene said, and was found up walking around when the Village Ambulance service arrived.

Officials were able to quickly upright and tow the vehicle, and traffic only saw minor delays.
