ADAMS, Mass. — A chain reaction crash involving three sport utility vehicles forced the closure of the southbound lane of Howland Avenue in front of the Mobil Station and sent at least one person to the hospital.
The crash occurred around 2 p.m. when a dark blue late-model Chevrolet Equinox attempted to enter the Mobil Station's southern entrance. It was apparently struck in the rear by a light blue Mercedes-Benz L350 and then, according to one officer at the scene, "everyone went everywhere."
Caught up in the crash was a dark-colored Honda CRV with Vermont plates. Debris was scattered along the southbound lanes, which were closed and traffic was diverted over Old Columbia Street. The Equinox's rear end was crushed and it was taken away by Mohawk Auto Wrecking.
The Mercedes had significant damage to the front end and the CRV incurred damage on the driver's side.
Adams Fire Department responded to the scene along with police, Adams Ambulance Service and Northern Berkshire EMS.
Further information was not immediately available.
