3 injured in crash involving Greenfield police cruiser

Driver of other vehicle is now in critical condition

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A Greenfield police officer and two other people were taken to the hospital Sunday night, following a crash between the officer’s cruiser and another car.

Mary Carey, spokesperson for the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office, told 22News that the driver of the second vehicle involved in the crash, a Subaru, is now in critical condition.

Carey says that the crash took place shortly before 8:00 P.M., when the two vehicles collided at the intersection of High and Sanderson Streets, just outside Baystate Franklin Medical Center. The cruiser had been traveling southbound on High Street, while the Subaru was going westbound on Sanderson. The force of the crash sent both vehicles off the roadway.

The officer, as well as the driver and passenger inside the Subaru, were taken to Baystate Franklin for treatment, and the Subaru driver was later transferred to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield.

Massachusetts State Police assigned to the DA’s office, members of the state police Collision and Analysis Reconstruction Section (CARS), and Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services are all looking into the cause of the crash.
