While officers were at the River Street accident a call came in for the pedestrian accident at Holden Street. 
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Two accidents that caused injuries occurred within about an hour of each other late Monday afternoon. 
 
Shortly after 4 p.m., a driver heading west on River Street in a gray Hyundai sedan collided near the carwash with an eastbound Toyota sport-utility vehicle out of New York. According to preliminary reports, the Hyundai's driver was trying to turn off the car's hazard lights and took her eyes off the road and collided with SUV.
 
One person was being taken by Northern Berkshire EMS to the satellite emergency facility. 
 
The Toyota's front driver's tire assembly was ripped off the vehicle and it sustained significant front-end damage. The Hyundai incurred damage to the front driver's side and door. The vehicles were taken away by Dean's and Cariddi's towing companies. The roadway was closed between the intersection with Houghton Street to Brown Street for almost an hour while the vehicles were removed and vehicle parts cleaned up. 
 
While police and firefighters were dealing with that scene, a pedestrian was struck by a car near the intersection of Holden and Center streets at about 4:40. The woman was walking across Veterans Memorial Way when a eastbound car turned right toward Holden and struck her.
 
She was taken from the scene by ambulance to the satellite emergency facility, where she was treated and released. The accident is under investigation.
 
The roadway was partially closed and traffic eastbound over the Veterans Memorial Bridge slowed and directed around the accident by police. Center Street on the west side of Holden was closed.  
 
Also, earlier in the afternoon, another accident occurred in Adams when an extend-cab pickup struck and broke a utility pole head-on on Columbia Street, forcing the road to be closed while the truck was removed and a new pole installed by National Grid. 
 
No further information on these accidents was immediately available.
