WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The three-car accident in front of the Spruces on Tuesday afternoon sent the three people involved to the hospital.

According to police, Elin Ozdemir, 79, of Emerald Lane, the Spruces, was stopped in the eastbound lane of Main Street waiting to turn left into the mobile home park at about 3:20 p.m. when she was struck from behind by a 2002 Honda Odyssey operated by Nicole Deblois, 38, of Dalton.

The collision pushed Ozdemir's 1992 Plymouth Acclaim into the westbound lane of Main Street, where she was then struck by a westbound 2010 Ford Escape, operated by Lenore Freeman, 61, of Williamstown.

Ozdemir's Plymouth ended up perpendicular to Main Street in the middle of the roadway. Deblois' Honda ended up on the eastbound sidewalk at the intersection with Hamel Avenue. Freeman's Ford veered right, jumped the curb, and traveled across the Spruces lawn, coming to rest near the fence of the Spruce's pool.

Williamstown Police and Fire, along with Village and North Adams Ambulance services responded to the scene. The Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to assist in extracting Ozdemir from her Plymouth.

All three operators were the sole occupants of their vehicles and all three were transported to North Adams Regional Hospital. None of the injuries appeared to be life threatening.

All three vehicles were towed from the scene, each with extensive damage. Deblois was cited for following too closely.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Police are investigating a series of ATM thefts.

Three businesses have had their ATM stolen in the last two months. The first occurred in June when two men broke into Porter's Variety Store on Pecks Road and carried the cash machine out of the store.

The second incident occurred last Wednesday when a man used a hand truck to carry an ATM out Casey's Billiards on Dalton Avenue, loaded it into an open car trunk and drove off at about 6:30 a.m. The surveillance video from that robbery is available below.

Bill's Top of the Hill Citgo on West Housatonic Street was broken into in the early hours of Monday. Surveillance showed two men loading the ATM into a pickup truck.

Also on Saturday morning, Teo's restaurant on East Street was broken into and surveillance video shows a single person attempting to steal the ATM with a hand truck. The suspect escaped without the machine.
