U.S. Rep. John Olver
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — U.S. Rep. John W. Olver was unhurt when his car went off the road and into a stream Tuesday morning in Williamsburg.

According to the Daily Hampshire Gazette, the Amherst Democrat was on Route 9 in Williamsburg en route to Pittsfield when his car went over an embankment and into a stream. Olver changed his mind about passing another vehicle and was trying to drive back into his lane when he lost control.

Olver was going to Berkshire Community College to tour the uncompleted Hoffmann Sustainable Energy Resource Training Center. That meeting was canceled.

The longtime member of the House Appropriations Committee was instrumental in securing the $750,000 to renovate the former environmental facility into a green technology center.

Williamsburg Fire Chief Donald Lawton told the Daily Hampshire Gazette that Olver singed a release to forgo medical treatment.
