WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Two people were taken by ambulance from the scene of a two-car collision at the corner of Main Street and Luce Road on Monday afternoon, police said.
According to a police report, Laura Martin of Shaftsbury, Vt., was exiting Luce Road and pulled into the path of a vehicle driving east on Main Street at 5:22 p.m.
Police Officer John J. McConnell wrote that the 2014 Subaru driven by Suzanne Graver of Williamstown was traveling east on Main Street and was "unable to avoid [Martin's car], striking the front."
Both Graver's vehicle and Martin's 2001 Ford went off the road and into a row of bushes at 147 Main St., according to the report.
Graver and Martin were transported from the scene by Northern Berkshire EMS with apparent minor injuries, police said.
Kyle Wellspeak of Shaftsbury, a passenger in Martin's vehicle, left the scene on his own.
