Motorists Accidentally Drives Over Main Street Median
Traffic was diverted around the scene across from the Mohawk Theater for a half-hour or so until the car was taken away. No one was injured but the driver appeared a little shaken.
The woman apparently drove her late model Hyundai Elantra sedan across the eastbound lanes of Main Street and over the median and headed the wrong way in the southernmost lane at about 1:30 p.m.
The small car went under one of the chains strung along the median to deter pedestrian and motor vehicle crossings. One of the posts connected to the chain was tilted and car's roof was scratched up. The car also went up on the median curbing as it traveled east in the westbound lane. Both tires on the driver's side popped as did the front tire on the passenger side.
Police, firefighters and Northern Berkshire EMS responded to the scene and the driver was helped away from the car until a family member could be contacted. Mohawk Auto Wrecking removed the vehicle. Police are looking into the accident.
