Tractor Trailer Rollover On Route 2 and 7 In Williamstown
iBerkshires.com reports no injuries early Monday morning when an 18-wheeler overturned at the notorious junction of Routes 2 and 7 near Margaret Lindley Park.
Williamstown Police reported on Facebook that the single vehicle accident occurred at about 5 a.m. and warned that motorists should expect “intermittent delays” through mid-afternoon while the scene was cleared.
As of about 8:30, traffic was running in both directions. The truck was on the property of the A-Frame Bakery facing south.
The most visible damage to the A-Frame property was to its road sign sign, which apparently was knocked over in the accident and was leaning up against the side of the building.
The intersection is well known to be a point of concern in town and has been the site of many incidents over the years. A runaway truck ramp is available to vehicles coming down Route 2 (east) into the junction, but there have been criticisms in the past that there is not enough warning or time for truckers to react going into the the busy intersection.
