CHESHIRE, Mass. (WWLP) – The 61-year-old man that was killed in the multi-car crash in Cheshire Sunday morning has been identified.

According to the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, around 7:11 a.m., troopers were called to a crash on Route 8 near Farnum Road where 61-year-old Anthony Emard died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.

The Berkshire DA’s Office said a Jeep driven by 29-year-old Trever Field was traveling southbound behind a Mustang driven by a 37-year-old Michael Taylor.

The driver of the Jeep first moved into the northbound lane and then struck the rear bumper of the Mustang when maneuvering back into the southbound lane, causing it to spin out. Emard was traveling northbound when one of the two other cars struck him, causing it to roll over.

Emard passed away where the collision took place while the other two drivers were taken to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield with serious injuries said police.

State Police, Cheshire Barracks and the State Police Detective Unit assigned to the Berkshire County District Attorney’s Office are looking into the cause of the collision.
