3 injured in head-on collision on Cheshire Road


PITTSFIELD — One man and two women were hospitalized with serious injuries Friday evening, after a head-on collision on Cheshire Road. 

Shortly before 7 p.m., police and rescuers were called to the 300 block of Cheshire Road. 

Cory Bly, 28, of Brainard, N.Y., was traveling northbound on Cheshire Road in a Saturn Ion and "for reasons unknown at this time" crossed the double yellow line and collided with a Toyota, Pittsfield Police Officer James McIntyre said on the scene.

Bly, 19-year-old Sienna Witherell, who was driving the Toyota, and her mother, Kellie, both of Adams, were taken by ambulance to a hospital with "serious, possibly life-threatening injuries," McIntyre said. 

Both sedans were seriously damaged. The Saturn's door was removed to extricate the driver. 

A portion of Cheshire Road was temporarily closed while police and rescuers responded. The cause of the collision remains under investigation, McIntyre said. 

As of 9:30 p.m., all three were being treated for their injuries, McIntyre said.

Any witnesses are asked to assist in the investigation by calling Pittsfield Police at 413-448-9700, ext. 341.
