NORTH ADAMS, Mass. (AP) — Police say a North Adams woman has died after her van crashed into a utility pole in the city.
Police Director Michael Cozzaglio says 56-year-old Deborah Pierce was ejected from the vehicle van after she struck the pole near the Hillside Cemetery on West Main Street shortly after 6:30 a.m. Friday.
Cozzaglio tells The Berkshire she died on impact.
He says speed appears to be a factor.
A section of the street was closed during the investigation and to fix the pole.
