Tammy Daniels

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. —  There were three motor vehicle accidents in town over the weekend, sending three people to North Adams Regional Hospital.

The first, at about 3:42 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14, involved three cars at the Adams Road and Main Street intersection, in front of the Colonial Shopping Center.

According to police, a 2003 Toyota Celica driven by Henry Farnham, 84, of Hancock, pulled out of Adams Road to head west on Main in front of an eastbound 2002 Buick Rendezvous being operated by Kenneth Dugal, 24, for the town of Florida.

The Buick struck the Celica in the driver's side door, spinning it into a 2008 Toyota Tacoma driven by Stephanie Goldberg-Luger, 19, of Minneapolis, who also was heading east.

Both the Celica and Buick were towed from the scene with moderate damage; Farnham and two passengers in the Tacoma were transported to the hospital with minor injuries. Farnham was cited for a state highway traffic violation.

Two hours later, police responded to a two-car crash at the intersection of Main and Cole Avenue in which both drivers were allegedly operating under the influence.

According to police, a 1998 Ford Ranger operated by Dennis St. Pierre, 50, of Williamstown, was turning left onto Cole Avenue from the eastbound lane of Main Street at about 5:34 when he was struck by in the passenger side by a westbound 2005 Buick LaCrosse.

The driver of the Buick, William Wheeler, 85, of Williamstown, was issued a criminal complaint for a first offense OUI; St. Pierre was arrested on a second offense OUI. Wheeler was also taken to NARH with neck and back pain.

Both vehicles suffered heavy front-end damage and were towed from the scene.

The third incident involved a single car and a deer. According to police, Amanda Burnham, 25, of Williamstown was northbound on Syndicate Road at about 7:18 a.m. on Sunday when she swerved to avoid a deer and lost control of her car.

The 2005 Hyundai she was operating struck a utility pole on the east side of the road. Burnham was not injured by the car was heavily damaged on the passenger side and had to be towed away.
