Williamstown Man Facing Charges After Crash

Williamstown Police

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A Williamstown man has been charged with multiple motor vehicle violations, including his third offense of drunken driving, after a crashing on North Hoosac Road on Wednesday night.

Edgar A. Bump, 40, of Mill Street is facing single counts of operating under the influence of liquor (3rd offense), operating to endanger, passing in violation of pavement markings, speeding and failing to wear a seat belt.

The crash was reported at about 9:24 p.m. in the 100 block of North Hoosac Road. Bump apparently tried to pass another vehicle in a no-passing zone and lost control of his Blazer, going off the road and hitting a utility pole. Officer Preston Kelly was the first on the scene and found Bump in his heavily damaged 2000 Chevrolet Blazer.

Bump, the only occupant in the Blazer, had to be extricated with the Jaws of Life by the Fire Department and was taken by Village Ambulance to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield. Firefighters also hosed the vehicle down to prevent it becoming involved in fire. The Highway Department was called to sand the wet road because of the black ice that was forming.

National Grid was contacted to inspect the utility pole. No one else was injured in the crash.

The crash and subsequent investigation closed the roadway from Cole Avenue in Williamstown to Ashton Avenue in North Adams from 9:24 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. The investigation was conducted by Kelly and Sgt. Scott McGowan.
