Both the driver and passenger of this Pontiac were taken the hospital after the crash Wednesday afternoon.

The gray van was pushed into the Dodge Journey. Both had to be towed.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Three people were injured in a rear-end collision that involved four vehicles at about 1 p.m. near entrance of Ocean State Job Lot. 
The crash is still under investigation but police believe that it was caused when a red Pontiac G5 coupe collided with a gray Dodge Caravan owned by livery service E-Pod, which was pushed into a red Dodge Journey and then into another vehicle. That first car did not incur any significant damage and the driver was able to leave the scene. 
All four vehicles were in the southbound lane of Curran Highway and the first three stopped at the light at the entrance to the shopping plaza. 
There were two occupants in the Pontiac and both were taken to Berkshire Medical Center, as was an occupant in the Dodge Journey. There were no passengers in the E-Pod van and the driver and another person in the Journey were unhurt. 
The Pontiac was the only vehicle that had airbags deployed; its front end was heavily damaged when it struck the rear driver's side of the van. The van also had some front-end damage and the Journey rear-end damage.
The three damaged vehicles were towed by Hampshire, Mohawk and Village wrecker services. The scene was cleared by about 2 p.m.
The initial call had been six patients and four ambulances responded to the scene along with fire and police. Charges may be filed pending the conclusion of the investigation.
