1 injured in 2-car Route 2 crash
GREENFIELD — A crash by the Route 2-West Adams Road bypass sent one man to the hospital on Sunday afternoon and destroyed both vehicles, according to police and fire reports.
The Greenfield Police Department logged a call reporting the accident at 1:23 p.m.
A Subaru sedan and a Honda minivan were towed from the scene, and police issued a “be on the lookout” request for a third vehicle as a possible witness or involved party.
Greenfield Fire Capt. Kyle Phelps said both cars were totaled.
“Both cars were off the road and into the woods. One, the Subaru, was actually on fire when we got there,” Phelps said.
The male driver of the Subaru was out of the car and conscious but not mobile, and was taken to Baystate Franklin Medical Center.
The woman driving the Honda was not hurt, he said.
“It was a pretty serious accident considering,” Phelps said. “The injuries don’t look to be serious.”
The identity and condition of the driver taken to the hospital could not be determined Sunday as no Greenfield Police officers ranking lieutenant or above, and therefore authorized to speak to reporters, were available.
According to the police log, State Police attached to the Athol barracks located the third driver, who was asked to go to the Greenfield station for an interview.
