Jul 2, 2019

A city man was killed in a motor vehicle collision in Pittsfield, Massachusetts Tuesday morning.

The Berkshire District Attorney’s office says 54-year-old motorcyclist Michael Lanphear of East Housatonic Street collided with a Jeep driven by Abigail Hunt, 25, in the westbound lane of West Housatonic Street at Osceola Street just before 8 a.m. While Hunt was uninjured, Lanphear died. The Pittsfield Police Department shut down the street – which is also Route 20 – as they conducted their investigation, which the Berkshire DA says is ongoing. No charges or tickets were issued and the road was reopened.
