2-car crash in Richmond on Route 41 kills 1 person
RICHMOND — An elderly person has died in a two-car crash for the second time in three weeks at the Route 41/Dublin Road intersection.
Shortly after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, state police from the Lee barracks and Richmond first responders were called to the intersection, where they found two people trapped in one of the vehicles, according to a state police spokesman. Richmond firefighters extricated the crash victims, who, along with the driver of the other vehicle, were taken to Berkshire Medical Center. State police say one of the victims was a 73-year-old woman who later died at BMC
A 2012 Toyota Camry and 2016 Honda Accord were involved in the crash, but details of how it occurred and the condition of the two crash survivors weren't immediately known.
State police are still investigating the cause of the accident.
The Route 41/Dublin Road intersection was the scene of a fatal two-car crash that killed an 84-year-old man three weeks ago.
Late afternoon on July 24, Roland Small of Richmond was a passenger in a 2007 Subaru Forester that collided with a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado pickup. Small and the Subaru driver were taken to BMC, where Small later died from his injuries.
The pickup driver wasn't hurt
Route 41 in the area of Dublin Road was closed for about four hours following that crash.
