WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A two-vehicle accident on Route 7 in front of the 1896 House on Wednesday sent seven people to the hospital.
According to police, a Ford Taurus driven by Ann Palmer, 51, of North Adams and a Toyota pickup truck driven by Peter Milesi, 30, also of North Adams collided shortly after 5 p.m.
Palmer's vehicle carried four juveniles and Milesi had his sister as a passenger. All seven involved were taken by ambulance to either Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield or North Adams Regional Hospital.
Police said Palmer had to be extricated from the vehicle by the Fire Department with the Jaws of Life and the truck had rolled over. None of the injuries were major but there were minor injuries and some of the occupants were taken to the hospital as a precaution.
A total of six ambulances were on the scene. Both vehicles were totaled.
The northbound lane was closed by state police for about 30 minutes until the vehicles were towed.
Police said it was a "T-bone" accident but did not reveal further details of the crash because it is still under investigation.
