2 killed in head-on crash on Rt. 20 in West Springfield

Route 20 has since reopened

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A portion of Route 20 in West Springfield is back open Saturday morning after a deadly multi-car crash Friday night.

Two people were killed on Route 20 near the Westfield line in a head-on collision around 5 o’clock Friday night.

The head of West Springfield’s Accident Reconstruction Unit, Sgt. Herbert Reese, told 22News two vehicles were driving in opposite directions when they crashed into each other on Route 20.

Both drivers were killed; there were no other passengers in those vehicles, but the head-on crash also caused two other vehicles to crash in the same area.

The passengers in those vehicles suffered minor injuries. There’s no word yet on how many people were in those vehicles.

While police were investigating, traffic was being diverted off Route 20 to Sibley Avenue.

Accident reconstruction was there for several hours, but the section of Route 20 did reopen around midnight.
