A motorcyclist suffered serious injuries and had to be airlifted to a local hospital after he was hit by a 96-year-old driver, according to a recent article in the Nashua Telegraph. The accident occurred at the intersection of Daniel Webster Highway and Veterans Drive.
The driver of the car involved in the accident told police that she couldn’t see the light because of a large truck in front of her, but when the truck and the car to her left decided to drive through the light, she did too, realizing too late that the light was red. Her car struck an SUV traveling through the intersection, then struck the motorcyclist. The SUV driver was not injured. The motorcyclist was taken too Massachusetts General Hospital, where he is in fair condition and is expected to recover from his injuries.
Based on the driver’s and eyewitness’s comments, Nashua police believe that the driver’s decision to drive into the intersection despite the red light caused the crash, and that neither alcohol nor drugs were involved. However, police are investigating the accident more closely.
