On Wednesday night, Penny Cicero, a resident of Hudson, was arrested and charged with aggravated DWI after police say she caused a three-car collision.
It was unclear from initial reports when exactly the crash occurred, but according to police, Cicero ran a red light in her 2002 Jeep Liberty at the intersection of the Sagamore Bridge and Lowell Road, or Route 3A. As she crossed through the junction, Cicero collided with the driver's side of a 2005 Dodge Neon driven by 43-year-old Kristi Boily, a Nashua resident.
Boily's vehicle then struck a 2004 Ford Escape being driven by another Hudson woman, Rachel Scanzani.
Scanzani and her SUV suffered only minor injuries in the crash, but Boily reportedly fared much worse. The 43-year-old sustained unnamed serious injuries and was taken to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center by a fire ambulance that arrived on scene. Updates to her condition have not been released.
Cicero, also in her 40s, suffered minor injuries and was treated at St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua. Police said that her injuries were not life-threatening.
Officials said that the intersection was shut down for nearly an hour to clear debris from the area and conduct an investigation of the events leading up to the accident.
After treatment, the Hudson woman was arrested and charged with aggravated DWI and was cited with a red light violation for the incident. Though she will appear in the 9th Circuit Court for arraignment, the date of the hearing has not been set.
