Slippery roads leads to minor accidents throughout the county


Despite slippery road conditions throughout the Berkshires during Wednesday morning's commute, local and state police reported only minor traffic accidents after a moderate storm dumped several inches of snow across the county.

With the bulk of the snowfall ending by 8 a.m., there were about a half-dozen accidents reported. None involved serious injuries.

The most serious accident involved a Ford Explorer SUV skidding off the northbound road around 4:30 a.m. The driver was transported to North Adams Regional Hospital for minor injuries.

There were two accidents in North Adams and a head-on collision in Williamstown.

There were also accidents reported in Lanesborough and New Ashford.

Berkshire County schools from Pittsfield to Sheffield and points between were closed after a 3-4 inch snowfall over south and central Berkshire County.

North Berkshire schools from Lanesborough to Williamstown, including North Adams, opened on a two-hour delay.
