Arlene Campoli, 72, of Cole Avenue, Pittsfield, has been identified as the passenger killed in Thursday's accident.. Campoli was the passenger in a 2010 Hyundai Elantra driven by Jill Greene, 53, also of Pittsfield.

Greene is currently in "critical condition" at Berkshire Medical Center.

Police say Greene's vehicle crossed into the southbound lane and crashed into the 2009 Buick Lucerne driven by 73-year-old Helen Munzer of Brookline. Munzer and her passenger, John Munzer, also of Brookline, are both listed in stable condition at Berkshire Medical Center.

Police say road conditions "appear to be a principal contributing factor to the crash."

Both vehicles were removed from the scene by Dean's Quality Auto in North Adams.


A two-car accident has closed Route 7; police are warning of slippery roads.

Update 9:10 p.m.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A two-car accident Thursday morning killed one and sent three others to the hospital with serious injuries.

Police have not released the name of the woman passenger killed in the crash pending notification of family; they are also withholding the names of the three others currently at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield.

A 2009 Buick and a 2010 Hyundai were heavily damaged in the crash that occurred about 10:21 a.m. on New Ashford Road about a mile south of the Store at Five Corners.

Each car had a driver and one passenger; firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate both occupants from one of the cars.

All four were taken to BMC and the female passenger of the Hyundai was transferred to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield where she died from injuries sustained in the crash, said Sgt. Scott McGowan.

It was snowing at the time of the crash and police warned of slick roads. New Ashford Road was closed from 10:21 a.m. until 4:45 p.m.

The investigation to determine the cause of the crash is under way by Williamstown and state police. Williamstown Police and Fire responded to the scene, along with Village Ambulance, North Adams Police and Ambulance Service, Lanesborough Police and state police and the State Police Collision Analysis & Reconstruction Section and Crime Scene Services Unit.


WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Local and state police were on the scene of a two-car accident on U.S. Route 7 about a mile south of the Five Corners on Thursday morning.

At 11:30, a Williamstown firefighter on the scene advised motorists queued up in the southbound lane that the road would be closed for at least two more hours.

Police at the scene reported that at least four occupants — two from each vehicle — were transported to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield. No information was available about their injuries.

Both cars sustained heavy front-end damage.

North Adams police assisted at the scene by helping keep southbound motorists from proceeding through the Five Corners intersection of Routes 7 and 43.

Officials at the scene advised that roads are very slick and recommended people stay off the road ore use extreme caution.

The region was expected to get an inch or more of snow through the day. Snow has been falling since earlier in the morning.
