GILL — An elderly man was hospitalized with “serious” chest pain following a three-vehicle collision along Route 2 just before the intersection with Main Road on Tuesday afternoon.

Police Sgt. Jason Bassett said he received the call to respond at 12:46 p.m. Upon arrival, first responders assisted the injured driver, who was that vehicle’s sole occupant, with getting out of his vehicle. He was seen alert and talking after being helped onto a stretcher. He was then transported to Baystate Franklin Medical Center by American Medical Response (AMR).

According to Bassett, the injured driver’s vehicle, a blue Toyota Prius, had its airbags deploy after rear-ending a gray Ford F-150 pickup truck, which had in turn rear-ended a black Subaru Impreza.

Other involved occupants, who were not transported to the hospital, sustained “minor injuries,” Bassett said. The Ford was occupied by two people, while the Subaru’s driver was that vehicle’s only occupant, he reported.

The Toyota and Ford were each towed by Byrne Towing, while the Subaru drove away without maintenance.

The westbound lane of traffic, where the collision occurred, was reopened around 20 minutes after responders received the call. Responding agencies included the Gill Police Department, Erving Police Department, Gill Fire Department and AMR.
