Pittsfield Man Dies In Single-Vehicle Collision in Richmond

RICHMOND, Mass. --- A Pittsfield man died in a single-car collision on Saturday afternoon.
 
Austin Shaw, 25, was killed when his Buick sedan failed to negotiate a curve on Route 41, veering off the road, and crashing into a tree. An infant in the vehicle suffered little to no injuries, according a release from the Berkshire district attorney's office.
 
Investigators believe Shaw was northbound at approximately 2:30 p.m. when the collision occurred. He was treated by County Ambulance personnel and was pronounced dead at the scene. 
 
Investigators did not find evidence suggesting any alcohol or drugs were involved. Preliminary evidence suggests speed may have been a contributing factor. The State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section continue to investigate the collision along with local law enforcement and the state police assigned to the district attorney's office.
 
Passers-by called 911 and removed the infant from the vehicle. EMTs transported the infant to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield for evaluation and the child was subsequently released.
 
The state Department of Transportation closed Route 41 to traffic from about 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Richmond firefighters extracted Shaw from the vehicle and R.W.'s Towing removed it.
