Serious Crash in Springfield Sends 3 People to the Hospital, 1 Critical


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Police are investigating a motor vehicle crash on Plumtree Road that has left one man in critical condition, and another man and woman in serious condition.

That’s according to Springfield Police Captain, Cheryl Clapprood who told us the call came in at 7:35 p.m. for an accident at 1168 Plumtree Road involving 2 motor vehicles.

Clapprood says a vehicle carrying a male and female in their 20’s crashed into another vehicle with a male driver who is also in his 20’s.

Two of the individuals had to be removed from their vehicle by the Springfield Fire Department using the Jaws of Life.

The male driver has been taken to Baystate Medical Center and Clapprood says he is in critical condition.

She also reports that the man and woman in the other vehicle were taken to the same hospital and are in serious condition.

Earlier our crew on scene reported seeing a lot of glass all around on the ground.

The Springfield Police Department continues to investigate this incident.

The names of those involved have not been released at this time.

Clapprood says that black ice may have played a factor in this crash, but that no official cause has been determined yet.

ABC40 News will continue to watch this incident and as soon as more details emerge we’ll provide an update.
