Three hospitalized after Route 101 crash in Amherst

AMHERST - Three people were taken to the hospital early Tuesday morning after a head-on crash on Route 101 near the Route 122 overpass.

Police said the collision happened about 12:20 a.m. when a full-size pickup truck heading east crossed over a solid yellow line and into the westbound travel lane, crashing head-on into a sport-utility vehicle. Both occupants of the pickup truck, and the driver and sole occupant of the SUV were transported to area hospitals for treatment of serious injuries.

Police have yet to release the names of those injured.

Route 101 was shut down for about four hours while police investigated. Weather conditions and speed contributed to the crash, police said, while alcohol is not believed to have been involved.

The crash remains under investigation.
