Police are still investigating a two car accident that left one woman seriously injured on Monday, July 7. The almost head-on crash, which occurred in Ossipee, New Hampshire, on Route 16 near Green Mountain Furniture, also injured two other people.
According to the initial on-scene accident investigation, police believe a 2002 Saab operated by a 21-year-old woman from Ossipee, was driving south when the auto accident occurred. A 2005 Hyundai, operated by a 55-year-old woman, also from Ossipee, was traveling north at the same time with a 60-year-old woman in the front passenger seat. As the southbound woman approached Green Mountain Furniture store, police believe the Saab drifted over into the northbound lane, striking the 2005 Hyundai nearly head-on.
All three of the cars' occupants were taken to Huggins Hospital in Wolfeboro, but the 21-year-old Saab driver was then transported to Massachusetts General Hospital to receive further treatment for her serious injuries. As the accident investigation is still ongoing, police are asking anyone who may have information about the crash to contact the authorities.
The Ossipee police and fire departments responded to the scene along with North Conway Ambulance Service. Shortly after the auto accident occurred, Ossipee police officials requested assistance from the New Hampshire state troopers as well as a Collision Analysis & Reconstruction unit.
Until the accident investigation is complete, it will be difficult to assign blame in this case, but it shouldn't stop the victims from seeking compensation for medical expenses. Everyone has the right to travel our roadways without fear of car accidents, and seeking legal action is just one way to deter drivers from operating automobiles recklessly.
