Lanesborough Police closed the road at the intersection of Brodie Mountain Road.

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.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Police are investigating a fatal accident that occurred at 7 a.m. on Friday morning on West Main Street.

A local woman was killed when she apparently lost control of her Chrysler minivan and crashed into the guard rail, then sheared off a utility pole. The van hit a second pole and came to rest facing north not far from the entrance of Hillside Cemetery.

The name of the driver is being withheld pending notification of kin. She was the only occupant in the vehicle.

The victim has been identified as Deborah Pierce, 56, of Cleveland Avenue.

"She was heading west at a high rate of speed when she lost control," said Police Director Michael Cozzaglio. "Speed was a factor, absolutely, a high rate of speed."

The van's engine was resting next to the second utility; the driver was ejected and found about 10 feet away.

The highway was closed since the accident and traffic has been rerouted over Protection Avenue and Roberts Drive on the west side and Brown Street on the east.

The state police accident reconstruction unit was at the scene along with North Adams Police and Fire, and North Adams Ambulance Service. At the time of posting, the wreck was being cleared by Dean's Quality Auto but the road was going to be closed for awhile longer for National Grid to replace the pole.
