Single Car Accident Causes Road Closure in Williamstown

Staff Reports
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Traffic was snarled for about a half-hour Wednesday afternoon by a one-car accident on Simonds Road that saw one person taken away by ambulance.
 
A little after noon, a car southbound on U.S. Route 7 lost control, striking and severing a utility pole on the west side of the road, according to Williamstown Police.
 
The car, which sustained severe front-end damage, ended up across the road and perpendicular to the flow of traffic.
 
Police confirmed that there were two occupants of the vehicle, including the driver. One occupant, whose name was not available, was transported from the scene by Northern Berkshire EMS. The individual appeared to be conscious and alert.
 
Ron's Auto Repair of Main Street removed the vehicle from the scene, and with National Grid personnel on scene, police were able to restore traffic in a single lane by just before 1 p.m.
 
At about 2:15, National Grid killed power to the neighborhood while it conducted repairs to the line. Power was restored about at about 4:45.
 
The utility pole involved was replaced in the spring after an accident that damaged the previous pole at the spot.
 
Police said Wednesday's accident is under investigation.
