One person was killed and another injured in motor vehicle accident early Wednesday morning.

Updated at 2:25 p.m., Aug. 28, 2013

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — One person was killed and another injured in a motor-vehicle accident early Wednesday morning.

Erica Rock, 31, the passenger in the vehicle, died later Wednesday morning at Berkshire Medical Center from injuries received in the accident.

Her father, Kenneth Rock, 58, of North Adams, the driver, was taken to North Adams Regional Hospital.

Police on Wednesday were not releasing any information on the identities of those involved other than to say a man and a woman were in the sport utility vehicle at the time of the accident.

The accident is still under investigation by North Adams and state police.

"The vehicle was headed eastbound when it hit the pole on the eastbound side and sheared it off; it then impacted with the cement wall and crossed the road and impacted with another pole," said Sgt. James Burdick.

Erica Rock was ejected from the vehicle; neither Rock was wearing a seat belt.

The accident was reported at 1:15 a.m. on Wednesday as a single car into a utility pole with lines down. Two ambulances were called to the scene: one victim was taken to North Adams Regional Hospital and the other to Berkshire Medical Center.

The accident occurred between Richview and Goodrich streets on Route 2.

The street was closed for hours for the state police team's reconstruction and for National Grid to repair the lines; the utility company was still completing repairs at about 9 a.m. Burdick did not believe anyone lost power during the event.

The vehicle, a late-model 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, was towed by Mohawk Towing.

Police are investigating an afternoon robbery at the Corner Market.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Two suspects are being sought in a bold daylight robbery on Saturday that injured a clerk at the Corner Market.

"A lady was found inside the store," said Sgt. James Burdick. "She was assaulted and the store robbed."

Police are seeking two men, possibly African-American or Hispanic; one was clad in black, the other was wearing an orange track suit-type outfit.

The call came in about 3 p.m. Burdick said the clerk was alone in the store on a regular shift at the time of the robbery and received minor injuries. She was currently at the police station speaking with investigators.

Burdick said the scene had been closed off and state police Crime Scene Services was en route. No information on what or how much was stolen would be available until after the scene was processed, he said.

Several officers were at the scene and the store entrance was closed off with police tape. Lanesborough Police provided a K-9 unit for several hours.

The building at 108-110 River St. is owned by Nazim N. Daredia. The convenience store had long been operated by the James and Gisele Bua until the 1990s.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Police are warning residents to make sure their car and garage doors are locked after a series of break-ins in the West End.

Unsecured cars and a few garages have been entered over the past two weeks in the Notch Road area, including Marion and Woodlawn avenues.

"We can't stress this enough: you must lock your doors," said Police Director Michael Cozzaglio on Thursday. "Times have changed."

Residents are also advised not to leave valuable in their cars and to secure their garages. At least one resident had valuables taken from an unlocked car in an unlocked garage. The break-ins were described as crimes of opportunity, in which the thief or thieves are swiftly rifling unlocked vehicles.  

Residents should be alert and report any late-night suspicious activity to the police by calling 911.
