PITTSFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Three people were hospitalized after a rollover crash in Pittsfield Saturday morning.

Pittsfield Detective Captain Mark Trapani told 22News, emergency crews were called to the intersection of Columbus Avenue and Center Street for a two-car crash just before 10 a.m. Saturday morning.

Police said 40-year-old Chester Soutier from Pittsfield was approaching the intersection of Center Street when he collided with a car going northbound, driven by 35-year-old Jaime Adorno.

As a result of the crash, Soutier’s vehicle spun and rolled over on to the driver side, hitting the curbside of the road.

Soutier and his passenger were trapped inside the vehicle and had to be freed by the Pittsfield Fire Department.

Cpt. Trapani said both Soutier and his passenger were taken to the hospital for their injuries. Soutier was in critical but stable condition, while the passenger only had minor injuries. An occupant in the other car was also taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

Columbus Avenue was closed to traffic from North Street to Center Street for hours, but has since reopened.

The Pittsfield Police Department Accident Investigation Unit are still looking into what led up to this crash.
