Pittsfield, MA (July 11, 2018) – A rear-end collision in Pittsfield on Tuesday sent one person to the hospital. Just after 4:00 pm, Matthew Hoag of Cheshire was operating a 2004 Honda Accord on South Street when he rear-ended a 2007 Hyundai Elantra driven by 71 year old Manzel Morton of Pittsfield. Both drivers pulled their cars off the road and waited for police to arrive. Traffic in the area was slow to get by while the crash scene remained active.
Berkshire police arrived on scene and Morton complained of injuries sustained in the rear-end crash. She was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where her condition is currently unknown. It is expected that Hoag will be cited for causing the crash, however, it is unknown what caused him not to stop in time to avoid a collision.
Boston Injury Attorneys
A car accident can cause very serious and catastrophic results. Most victims of car accidents have no warning that the crash is about to occur and therefore have no time to avoid it or defend themselves from the full impact of the crash. Collisions often take place at full speeds, which results in the damage and destruction that we see with this type of crash. In many cases, drivers are usually fortunate if they can walk away from a car accident relatively unscathed. Often, a matter of inches can make the difference in a fatal crash and a less serious one.
After the crash, you will want to seek immediate medical treatment for your injuries and begin the process of focusing on your healing. Failure to see your doctor as soon as possible can jeopardize both your health as well as your personal injury claim. During this time, you should also seek the services of an experienced injury attorney who can help you manage your case and obtain the recovery that you deserve.
