Car chase, crash close routes 5 & 10
DEERFIELD — A car chase apparently ended in a two-vehicle crash Thursday night, briefly closing Greenfield Road.
The crash occurred at about 8 p.m. on routes 5 and 10 near the north entrance to Old Deerfield, and involved a police pursuit, according to the Fireground360 Facebook page, run by Western Massachusetts emergency personnel.
An employee of the nearby Wok Chinese food restaurant said the road had been reopened by 10:30 p.m. He said that patrons who had passed by said it appeared that a car hit the guardrail, bounced off, and struck another vehicle.
Deerfield police were still investigating the accident at press time, and further information was unavailable. An officer answering the phone Thursday night said he had just begun his shift, and could not confirm any details of the incident.
