Minivan crash in Pittsfield, New Hampshire, injures five

On November 2, at the height of commuter traffic, a single-vehicle accident on Route 107 in Pittsfield, New Hampshire sent five people to the hospital with injuries. The Friday evening crash occurred when a minivan veered off the road and hit a tree at the intersection of Catamount and Governors Roads.

Emergency crews arrived on scene just after 5:20 p.m. According to police, the Jaws of Life had to be used twice to extricate some of the passengers. Three children were reportedly in the van. News outlets originally stated that a fuel tanker was involved in the crash, but a press release from the Pittsfield police issued on Sunday clarified that the minivan was the only vehicle involved.

Four of the victims in the crash were taken by ambulance to Concord Hospital, while the final person had to be flown by Medevac helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon for treatment. It was not clear whether there were any other passengers in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

As of Sunday, none of the victims had been identified by police or the Pittsfield Fire Department. Updates as to the victims' conditions or the severity of their injuries were not made available.

Police have said that the investigation into the crash is ongoing, but did not comment on a potential cause for the incident.
