ADAMS, Mass. — Police are investigating a motorcycle and truck collision on Saturday that sent at least two to the hospital, one with serious injuries.
 
Adams Police, Fire, and Ambulance were dispatched around 3:45 p.m. Saturday to the area of 61 East Road to an accident involving a 2018 Chevy Silverado and a 2006 Harley-Davidson.
 
According to police , the Silverado was northbound on East Road when the Harley-Davidson, which was headed south, crossed from the southbound lane to the northbound lane.
 
The pickup attempted to avoid the motorcycle by turning away but was unable to and the two collided.
 
Both the motorcycle and the Silverado sustained extensive damage.
 
It was reported to dispatch that the operator of the motorcycle was unresponsive but breathing and upon arrival emergency services found that the operator of the motorcycle received serious bodily injuries.
 
The motorcyclist was transported to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield. He was later transferred to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield.
