NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Two children from Greylock School were taken to Berkshire Medical Center's satellite emergency facility for an evaluation after the bus they were on was involved in a three-vehicle accident. Police said there were no serious injuries.
The accident occurred shortly after school got out at 3 p.m. A black Subaru Outback was attempting to exit Protection Avenue onto State Road and the driver had edged out to far into the travel lane. Police were not sure if the driver had been trying to see around a utility pole. The red Jeep Wrangler was heading west and was clipped by the Subaru, sending it directly into the bus.
The Dufour school bus was oriented eastbound and stopped in the middle turn lane. Neither the bus nor Jeep appeared to have any serious damage and the Subaru incurred damage on the left front fender. The driver of the Jeep was also taken by ambulance to the emergency room.
A second bus was dispatched to pick up the students from Bus 1 at the scene to bring them back to Greylock Elementary School, where parents had been asked to pick up their children, according to the school district. Normal bus operations will resume Friday.
The Subaru was removed by Dean's Quality Towing and the Jeep by Mohawk Auto. The bus was driven away.
North Adams Fire and Police, Northern Berkshire EMS and Adams Ambulance responded to the scene. The road was closed for about an hour.
