Great Barrington Police Cite Man Following Single-Car Crash
GREAT BARRINGTON — Chief William Walsh reports that the Great Barrington Police Department has cited a man following an investigation into a single-car crash that occurred earlier this month.
A 29-YEAR-OLD MAN FROM STOCKBRIDGE is cited with the following:
- Operating to Endanger
- Passing in a No Passing Zone
On Monday, Jan. 9 at approximately 8 p.m., the 29-YEAR-OLD MALE was traveling southbound on Stockbridge Road when he lost control of his vehicle in the area of the Monument Mountain Reservation.
His vehicle crossed over two lanes to the other side of the road, striking several trees and a catch basin, which caused the vehicle to go airborne. The man was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the car through the front passenger window.
Great Barrington Police and Fire responded to the scene. The 29-YEAR-OLD MALE suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported via ambulance to Monument Mountain Regional High School where a LifeNet helicopter flew him to Albany Medical Center.
He will be summonsed to Southern Berkshire District Court.
