Pittsfield, MA (July 11, 2018) – Police in Pittsfield investigated two rear-end crashes that occurred at nearly the same location on Tuesday. The first crash, which we previously reported on, involved a 71 year old woman being rear-ended on South Street. The second crash, which took place less than an hour after the first, also occurred on South Street.
In this crash, police say that 17 year old Cedric Rose was driving a 2009 Ford Focus when he hit a 2016 Hyundai Sonata being driven by 30 year old Ashley Pemble. Pemble’s 5 year old son was in the car at the time of the crash. Additionally, the force of the crash caused Pemble’s car to go forward and hit a 2011 Mitsubish Endeavor, driven by 67 year old Patricia Duma. All involved are Pittsfield residents.
Pemble and her son were taken to Berkshire medical center for treatment of injuries but have since been released. No other individuals were injured in this crash.
