An accident in New Hampshire shut down the roadways and sent two women to the hospital, reports from July 22 claim. The car accident happened shortly past 8:00 a.m. on Route 9. The crash ended up involving three vehicles.
The Chesterfield Police Department reported that a 34-year-old woman was driving west when she hit a stopped vehicle from behind. That vehicle was being driven by a 50-year-old woman from Spofford, New Hampshire, whose vehicle then was pushed into the eastbound lane where there was oncoming traffic. Upon entering the eastern lane, the woman’s vehicle struck another car being driven by a 26-year-old woman.
The 26-year-old allegedly had no injuries following the accident, but the 34-year-old had injuries to her abdomen and back. The woman in the first vehicle hit also suffered injuries including facial ones that needed to be treated.
While it’s not clear what the cause of the accident was, negligence is being considered. Charges have not yet been determined. It has been said that the road where this accident took place has had several incidents like this before. There is a turn that people can make, but with no turn lane, that can be dangerous if someone isn’t paying attention. Police have said that the road is in good condition, which makes it easier for people to speed on Route 9.
This accident took around an hour and a half to clean up, and it’s fortunate that no one was killed. If your car crash resulted in injuries or deaths, then you have a right to seek compensation. You shouldn’t have to let someone else’s negligence cost you time and money.
