Adams Collision Sends Woman to BMC
ADAMS, Mass. — A head-on collision between a pickup and a car on Howland Avenue in front of the Dugout Motel at about 2:22 p.m. sent an eldery woman to the hospital.
Maryann Dilego, 71, of 100 Howland Ave. was taken to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield by Adams Ambulance Service after the red 2002 Hyundai Accent she was driving collided with a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado truck driven by Gary Mazzantini, 50, of 1690 Windsor Road, Cheshire. No further information was provided in the police report.
Mazzantini reportedly refused treatment at the scene. Howland Avenue (Route 8) was closed to traffic from Hodges Cross Road in North Adams to Lime Street for a time. The state police accident reconstruction team was called to the scene and the accident is still under investigation.
There was a persistent rumor that someone was killed in the accident but police confirmed on Tuesday that there were no fatalities.
