Staff Reports

NEW ASHFORD, Mass. — A two-car motor vehicle accident led Police to close a section of Route 7 for nearly two hours Monday morning.

The accident occurred 4 miles south of the Five Corners at about 7 a.m.

State police said both drivers of the vehicles were transported to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield with "nonlifethreatening injuries."

Names were not available, but the crash involved a 22-year-old man from Agawam driving a 1997 Saturn coupe and a 59-year-old Williamstown driving a BMW sedan. Both drivers were entrapped in their vehicles and had to be removed using the Jaws of Life, according to state police.

There no other passengers in either car.

Williamstown and Lanesborough police assisted with traffic; New Ashford and Williamstown fire departments responded to the scene.

The state police Collision Analysis & Reconstruction Section (CARS) was called to assist with the investigation.

Traffic was being rerouted to Route 43 from Lanesborough to Williamstown from about 7:30 a.m. until about 9:30 a.m.

Lanesborough Police were redirecting traffic at the intersection of Route 7 and Brodie Mountain Road. Emergency responders from Lanesborough and Cheshire also were reportedly on scene.

No further information was available but the investigation is continuing by state police from the Cheshire barracks. Any charges would be filed after the investigation is complete, said police.
