If you've been watching the news in New Hampshire, you have probably heard about this tragic incident. According to the news, a 30-year-old woman was killed in a three-car accident near the intersection of Route 13 and 130 in Brookline, and her father was part of the emergency crew that arrived on the scene.
According to news from Dec. 26, the woman was headed to work after she dropped off her children at their grandparents' home. Around 9:00 a.m., she was driving along Route 13 when she went to make a left turn; unfortunately, she was struck from behind by a 2009 Toyota Tundra. She was forced into another lane and struck again by a 2004 Ford F-250, according to the news. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and the other drivers were not injured.
Police did report that alcohol and drugs were not involved, and they didn't believe that speed was a factor in the accident. However, they do think that inattentiveness could have been the cause of the accident. The case is still under investigation, and there is no word on whether criminal charges will be filed or not.
