SUNDERLAND – One person has died and two were seriously injured in a head-on collision between two cars on Amherst Road in Sunderland around 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
Sunderland Police Chief Jeffrey Gilbert could not be reached for comment early Monday morning, but a published report indicated the crash happened just south of Bub’s BBQ, 676 Amherst Road (Route 116).
Weather conditions did not appear to play a role in the crash, which remains under investigation. Road conditions were dry on Sunday.
A section of Amherst Road was temporarily closed as police probed the crash site.
A spokesman for the Massachusetts State Police barracks in Northampton said troopers from that facility did not respond to the crash.
