Two people die in Greenfield tractor-trailer crash

GREENFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Ten hours after the crash, still only one lane was open while crews continued to clean up.

This evening, state police identified the two people who died as 33-year-old Theodore Wilson and 45-year-old Eleanor Williams.

They are both from Birmingham, AL.

Police said they are investigating all possible contributing factors, including possible medical conditions.
