North Adams Man Injured in Rollover

By Jack Guerino
iBerkshires Staff
A local man was injured in a rollover accident on Daniels Road on Friday.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A local man was taken by Life Flight to Albany (N.Y.) Medical Center after rolling his Jeep on Daniels Road.

The accident occurred just after noontime on Friday as the report of a rollover at 192 Daniels. The name of the driver has not yet been released. No one else was in the Jeep and there were no other injuries.

Police Director Michael Cozzaglio said preliminary investigations show that the 2009 Jeep was traveling north on Daniels Road at a high rate of speed. After hitting a decorative rock along lawn, it is suspected that the driver was ejected from the vehicle and the Jeep flipped and came to rest upside down.

"Speed was definitely a factor," Cozzaglio said.

He said the driver did not have a seat belt on and sustained serous injuries. He added the Jeep may have been airborne at one point. It sustained significant damage. Debris was scattered on the road, including a pizza box and tools.

The accident is still under investigation. North Adams Ambulance, Fire and Police all responded to the scene. The road was closed until the vehicle could be removed.
