Van turns onto Bay Road from S. East St, Canterbury Lane directly above
Although seriously injured it's still pretty amazing the accident was not fatal. To the skateboarder due to a sudden impact, or the driver suffering a heart attack due to the sudden shock.
Amherst and Mass State Police closed off the road for a couple hours to do an accident reconstruction. For the rest of you, all you need do is look at the photo. Yikes!
Gazette coverage was timely for a change. Probably doesn't hurt that their owner and CEO Aaron Julien lives atop Canterbury Lane (although he needs to learn how to use a camera).
