NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Police are still investigating Monday afternoon's motorcycle accident that killed a Cheshire man.
Thomas Little, 69, was traveling southbound on his motorcycle on Curran Highway by Walmart at the same time a northbound car was turning left into the department store's south entrance by Mohawk Auto. He struck the passenger side of the small red Toyota sedan.
Little was taken to Berkshire Medical Center's satellite emergency facility where he was pronounced dead. He was alone on the bike. The driver of the car was taken to BMC's main campus in Pittsfield with injuries.
North Adams Police and Fire, Northern Berkshire EMS and state police responded to the scene. The accident occurred at about 12:45 p.m. and the highway was closed for some time and traffic diverted.
Police Lt. Anthony Beverly said the car appeared to have entered the southbound travel lane but added that the investigation is ongoing and no charges, if any, have been filed.
"The North Adams Police Department wants to extend our sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Little for this traumatic event," he said. "Nobody likes that to happen."

"They would operate as many days as they could in the beginning as they staff up and ultimately gearing towards full lunch and dinner operations that comport with Mass MoCA hours."
