RICHMOND, Mass. (WWLP) – An 84-year-old man died following a two-car crash in the Berkshire County town of Richmond at around 4:20 Wednesday afternoon.
According to Massachusetts State Police Media Relations, Roland Small of Richmond was a passenger inside a Subaru driven by a 78 year-old woman, also from Richmond. Troopers are still looking into what led to the collision on Route 41 between that woman’s car and a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck driven by a 19 year-old woman from Chatham, New York.
Both Small and the driver of the Subaru were taken to nearby hospitals, with serious injuries. Small, however, died from his injuries, while the driver is expected to survive. The driver of the Silverado pickup was not injured.
Route 41 in the area of Dublin Road was closed for about four hours following the crash.
No charges have been filed at this time, and the names of the drivers of both vehicles are currently not being released. The crash is still being investigated by multiple sections of the Massachusetts State Police, as well as the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
