PITTSFIELD — Six people were injured in a three-vehicle collision Friday evening on South Street, authorities said.

None of the injuries was believed to be life-threatening, according to a statement released Saturday by Pittsfield Police.

Blarry Sanchez, 26, of Lenox, was heading south near the Country Club of Pittsfield just after 9:15 p.m. when his Jeep Grand Cherokee rear-ended a southbound Nissan Maxima driven by Taylor Marion, 23, of Pittsfield, police said. The impact pushed Marion's vehicle into the northbound lane, where it collided with a Toyota Rav4 driven by Kermit Pruyne, 80, of the town of Washington.

Marion and three of her passengers were taken to Berkshire Medical Center for treatment, police said. Pruyne and a passenger in his vehicle also were taken to BMC, with minor injuries. No one in Sanchez's vehicle was injured.

South Street was closed for about two hours while the investigation was conducted.

It was not clear whether charges would be filed in the crash, which remains under investigation.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to contact Officer Michael Silver at 413-448-9700, ext. 596.
