NORTHAMPTON — The Northwestern district attorney’s office has identified the 57-year-old Haydenville man who was killed Tuesday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash on the Northampton-Williamsburg line.

Edward Duggan was the driver of an SUV that was headed west on Route 9 when it drifted onto the other side of the road, colliding with a pickup truck driving by a Worthington man in the eastbound lane, according to a preliminary investigation at the scene.

Duggan died as a result of injuries in the crash, which occurred at around 2:15 p.m. between Bread Euphoria Bakery and the Beaver Brook Golf Course. The Worthington driver sustained minor injuries, according to the DA’s office.

Route 9 was closed for hours following the crash. Traffic was rerouted near High Street in Haydenville. Both vehicles sustained heavy front-end damage and one remained on its side after the crash.

A person driving behind Duggan called 911 after witnessing the collision, according to the DA’s office.

No arrests were made in connection with the incident. State Police troopers assigned to the DA’s office and the Crime Scene Services Section, Williamsburg, and Northampton police and firefighters and a paramedic with Highland Ambulance responded to the scene. The collision remains under investigation.
