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.
