Wales man dies in logging truck crash in Stockbridge

STOCKBRIDGE — A 73-year-old Wales man was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle crash in Stockbridge this past weekend.
At 7:32 a.m. on Sunday, Massachusetts State Troopers from Westfield and State Lee barracks responded to reports of a logging truck crash on Interstate 90 headed westbound at the 5.6 mile-marker in Stockbridge. According to State Police, troopers located a logging truck upon arrival that had veered off the left side of the interstate and crashed in a gulley in the median.
Police have identified the operator of the truck as Roger F. Tetreault. He was determined to be deceased at the scene of the crash.
As a result of the crash, the left lane of the interstate was closed almost 3 p.m. The truck was towed from the scene.
The remaining facts and circumstances are still under investigation, according to Andrew McKeever, spokesperson for the Berkshire County District Attorney’s office. At this point, the incident does not appear to be suspicious, said McKeever.
