State Police: 13 spin-outs on MassPike due to bad road conditions caused by snowstorm


Local and State Police have been dealing with accidents and spin-outs due to Thursday night’s snowstorm.

MassDOT reduced the speed on the MassPike to 40-miles per hour.

A tractor-trailer truck jackknifed on the MassPike in Berkshire County just before 9 p.m.

State Police Sgt. Paul Sullivan told 22News the big rig spun out on the westbound side of the Pike at mile-marker 8.6. That’s two miles past Exit 2 in Lee.

Earlier Thursday night, several cars crashed and spun out on the Pike in Palmer. This was a multi-crash crash, involving four or five vehicles.

There was an ambulance on site. We have no specific details, but traffic was moving on that part of the pike.

Sgt. Sullivan told 22News, that by 7:30 p.m., the Westfield State Police Barracks had already dealt with 13 spin-outs.

Road conditions are not good.
