1 dead in 5-vehicle crash in Berkshires
SHEFFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- Police say a Sheffield, Mass., woman was killed and two people seriously injured after a five-vehicle crash in the Berkshires.
Sheffield Police Chief James McGarry says that at about 7 p.m. Tuesday a pick-up truck driven by 35-year-old Frederick Weller of Sandy Hook, Conn., was traveling north on Route 7 when it collided with four other vehicles.
He tells The Berkshire Eagle that 24-year-old Moira Banks-Dobson was killed when her Toyota Corolla was struck by the pick-up.
McGarry said another driver, 52-year-old Russell Brown of Great Barrington, was airlifted to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield. His condition wasn't available.
The chief said Weller was also taken to Baystate, where he was stable. Police said Weller is expected to face charges.
Four others escaped serious injury.
Sheffield is on the Connecticut border.
