CLARKSBURG, Mass. — A single-car accident injured at least one person and closed the River Road (Route 8) just north south of Town Hall shortly after 3:30 p.m.
A late-model silver Hyundai sedan was believed to be southbound when it veered and hit the soft shoulder of the road on the east side and flipped. Police were still investigating the accident and could not confirm the sequence of events.
The windshield was removed to allow emergency responders to get to the driver, a woman. The driver was taken to North Adams Regional Hospital with unknown injuries; the only other occupant, an underage boy, did not appear to be injured.
Clarksburg Police and Fire responded to the scene, as did North Adams Police and Fire and North Adams Ambulance Service.
