CHESHIRE, Mass. — An Adams man was killed in a motor vehicle accident on Sunday morning on Lanesborough Road.

William M. Morrissette, 26, was traveling east when his vehicle crossed the westbound lane, exited the roadway and struck a tree, according to state police.

Troopers from the Cheshire Barracks in Cheshire responded to reports of a crash, in front of house No. 80, at about 7:51 a.m.

Upon arrival, Trooper Kyle Jolin discovered that a 2014 Nissan Altima, for reasons still under investigation, had crashed.

An off-duty North Adams firefighter arrived on scene first, extricated Morrissette and began CPR on him. Morrissette was subsequently transported by Adams Ambulance Service to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, where he was pronounced dead by medical personnel.

The remaining facts and circumstances of the crash are currently under investigation by troopers from the Cheshire Barracks.

Troop B Headquarters, State Police Crime Scene Services Section (CSSS), State Police Collision Analysis Reconstruction Section (CARS), troopers assigned to the State Police Detective Unit of Berkshire County, Cheshire Fire Department, and Adams EMS, all assisted on scene.

No further information is currently available.
