An accident that State Police say was likely caused by road rage has left one driver with serious auto accident injuries in New Hampshire, according to a recent news report from MyFOX Boston.

The crash occurred on the Everett Turnpike near Merrimack on a recent weekday morning. The two vehicles, a Chevy Aveo subcompact and an Isuzu Rodeo SUV, collided on the Exit 11 ramp off the turnpike. The Isuzu rolled over during the crash, sending its driver flying from the vehicle. Rescue workers rushed the driver to a local medical center, where he is recovering from critical injuries caused by the crash. The driver of the Aveo walked away from the accident.

Investigators state that they believe road rage was a triggering factor in the incident. According to eyewitnesses, the two cars began fighting for position after the SUV cut the Aveo off at a stoplight just before getting on to the turnpike. Police are still investigating the details of the accident.

As fuel prices climb, many U.S. drivers are looking to buy smaller cars, many of which get better gas mileage than their larger counterparts. Smaller cars can seem riskier to drive, since their small size and light weight makes them and their occupants more likely to suffer damage and auto accident injuries in a crash. However, many small cars are rated at the top of the list for passenger safety, according to the U.S. Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS).safe compact cars

The IIHS’s Top Safety Picks for 2012 include several compact or sub-compact models made by both U.S. and foreign manufacturers. Top-rated small cars in safety include: Chevrolet’s Cruze and Sonic; the Fiat 500; Ford’s Fiesta and Focus; Honda’s Insight, Fit, and Civic; and Toyota’s Corolla and Yaris models.

The IIHS’s overall safety ratings are based on measurements in a number of categories, according to the Institute. These include front-impact, side-impact, rear-impact, and rollover crashes. To make it to the top of the list, vehicles must rate a “good” in all four crash categories – the highest of the four ratings IIHS gives.
