Slippery roads leads to minor accidents throughout the county

Posted

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.
