Van on top of car in Holyoke accident; 4 hurt

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Holyoke police blocked-off a downtown intersection for a short time late Thursday morning, following an accident in which a large van ended up on top of a car.

Holyoke Police Sgt. David O’Connell told 22News that four people were taken to the hospital for injuries following the accident at Dwight and Maple Streets. All of the crash victims are expected to recover.

During the crash, the Dodge Sprinter van, bearing signs for the land preservation non-profit The Trustees of Reservations, landed on its side, with the driver’s side of the vehicle up against the hood of the sedan.

Following the accident, police had blocked off the intersection of Dwight and Maple Streets, as well as a stretch of Dwight Street from High Street to Chestnut Street. Holyoke Police Sgt. David O’Connell said that those roadways have since re-opened.
