NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A two-car accident on West Main Street backed up traffic around West Main, Brown and River streets on Thursday afternoon.

According to police a late model black Ford Focus was headed west on West Main when it stopped for a bus in front of it. A white Honda Accord with New York plates apparently did not notice the Ford stopping and plowed into the back of it.

No one was hurt in the accident and the airbags in the Honda went off.

The accident occurred around 3 p.m. just east of Grimes Street. The roadway was limited to one lane and westbound traffic was allowed through and eastbound detoured over Brown Street. The cars were towed from the scene around 3:30 and the road reopened shortly after.

The suspect in an armed robbery at Cumberland Farms was caught on video.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A man armed with a black and silver handgun robbed the Cumberland Farms on Union Street (Route 2) on Wednesday night.

The suspect is being described as possibly a white or Hispanic male. He was wearing a black and white skull mask, black basketball shorts with a lighter stripe down the side, a black hooded sweat shirt that was inside out and dark colored basketball sneakers.

He may be associated with a small silver sedan.
