On Monday afternoon, a three-car collision on the main thoroughfare through Londonderry, New Hampshire, resulted in a teenage girl being sent to the hospital with neck and back injuries.
The crash occurred at about 3 p.m. on Mammoth Road, also known as Route 128, between its intersections with Old Coach Road and South Road. The three cars, which included a white Chevrolet, suffered serious damage in the accident. The driver of the Chevy sedan was reportedly trapped in his vehicle and had to be extricated by emergency personnel. He did not suffer any injuries.
One of the other drivers, a teenage girl whose name was not released, was transported to Parkland Medical Center in Derry following the accident. The Eagle Tribune reported that she had sustained neck and back injuries that were non-life-threatening, but updates on her condition or the severity of those wounds was not released.
The accident forced the closure of Mammoth Road for approximately half an hour while police investigated the cause of the crash and cleared the street of debris.
Police told the newspaper that they were en route to Mammoth Road because a citizen reported an erratic driver when they received news of the crash. They believe at this time that the reported individual caused the accident. They did not release information about which driver was suspected or whether they would face charges in connection with the incident.
Luckily, the overall damage was minimal.
Londonderry fire battalion Chief James Rodger told the newspaper, "They just kind of glanced each other. If it would have been a head-on crash, it would have been a lot worse."
