Driver Injured When Truck Hits North Adams Building

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The driver of a pickup truck was taken to North Adams Regional Hospital on Monday night after the truck he was driving smashed into a building.

The driver was able to exit the damaged late-model red Toyota Tacoma with the aid of firefighters and North Adams Ambulance personnel. There were no passengers. The name of the driver was not immediately available.

The accident was called in at about 9:30 p.m. as a "car into a building." The truck was coming down steep Liberty Street toward Houghton when it apparently failed to negotiate a righthand turn and hit the corner of the building across the street and slightly to the north.

Eyewitnesses who were in their living room at the time told police they heard the crash and looked out to see the truck going backwards. They attempted to encourage the driver to get out of the vehicle but said he seemed disoriented and asked for a push and tried to start the truck. They moved back when they saw what they believed to be gasoline leaking.

The commercial building exhibited little damage to its siding and concrete foundation. Pieces of the front end of the truck, however, were scattered around the scene. The vehicle went backwards, where it came to rest partly on the north sidewalk of Liberty and a foot or so away from a utility pole and another building on the passenger's side.

The street was closed to traffic below North Street and the accident was being investigated.

The front end of the Tacoma was severely damaged by the crash and the truck was towed away by Dean's Quality Auto.
