ADAMS, Mass. — More than 1,000 people took advantage of Monday's mild and sunny weather to make the ascent to the top of the state's highest peak during the annual Greylock Ramble.

ProAdams reports that near 1,200 people registered at the summit of Mount Greylock with more making there way to the top as the day went on.

The oldest hiker again was Caroline Brazeau from North Adams. Brazeau is 90 years old.

The three youngest to reach the summit were all four months old. Although Myles Mancino of Cheshire, and Annalise Stokes and Liam Brown of Adams may have had a little help, they still made it to the top.

David Slick and Lisa Bollinger traveled the farthest to hike Mount Greylock and traveled to Adams from Golden, Colo. 

The Ramble dates back to 1967 and is more recently partnered with a Ramblefest, a party that takes place at the Visitors Center day before.

Three-Car Crash in Adams Closes Highway

ADAMS, Mass. — A chain reaction crash involving three sport utility vehicles forced the closure of the southbound lane of Howland Avenue in front of the Mobil Station and sent at least one person to the hospital. 
 
The crash occurred around 2 p.m. when a dark blue late-model Chevrolet Equinox attempted to enter the Mobil Station's southern entrance. It was apparently struck in the rear by a light blue Mercedes-Benz L350 and then, according to one officer at the scene, "everyone went everywhere." 
 
Caught up in the crash was a dark-colored Honda CRV with Vermont plates. Debris was scattered along the southbound lanes, which were closed and traffic was diverted over Old Columbia Street. The Equinox's rear end was crushed and it was taken away by Mohawk Auto Wrecking. 
 
The Mercedes had significant damage to the front end and the CRV incurred damage on the driver's side.
