The Union Leader recently reported in a story about multiple crash instances near Bedford’s F.E. Everett Turnpike. The first car collision in New Hampshire occurred when a police cruiser was struck while the car was stopped and parked in the breakdown lane. The officer who had just issued a traffic citation to another motorist was sitting in his cruiser with the lights still flashing, and was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by a 42-year-old man from Manchester.

The second crash involved a fire truck that was on its way to the first crash site. As the fire truck was crossing over into the northbound lanes of traffic from a southbound lane, it was struck in the rear by another vehicle.

The Trooper was taken to Elliot Hospital and treated for his crash related injuries. He was later released. Damage to the fire truck was not substantial enough to cause serious injury to the fire truck occupants. However, a passenger from the car that struck the fire truck was also taken to Elliot Hospital for minor injuries.

The Union Leader recently reported in a story about a car collision in New Hampshire that occurred on U.S. Route 2 in Randolph that took the lives of three motorists and injured three more. The crash involved two vehicles a 2007 Nissan Altima driven by a 41-year-old woman of Lunenburg, Vermont, and a 2000 Ford Explorer driven by a 27-year-old man of Lewiston, Maine. The woman’s vehicle had two additional passengers, while the man’s had an additional three passengers. Both of the female driver’s passengers perished at the scene, as did one of the male driver’s passengers. The motorists and remaining passengers were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.

The accident was deemed not to have been caused by inclement weather. At the time of the accident, the weather was partly cloudy, and the roads were dry. The accident occurred at a wide point in the road. Substance abuse does not appear to have played a factor. U.S. Route2 has been the scene of numerous accidents throughout the years, although most of those accidents occurred at spots where the road tended to narrow.

In taking these details into consideration, one can only wonder if dangerous road conditions, such as unevenly paved roads, could have played some sort of factor in causing the accident. Whether or not this particular stretch of road was properly planned out in the first place, or has become more and more dangerous over the years due to shrubbery and other plant life protruding out from curves in the road, is a valid question that should be taken into consideration when deeming what exactly caused the accident to occur in the first place.

A recent article reported about a local woman’s harrowing rescue from a burning car. A 25-year-old woman of Danville was driving her 2004 Hyundai automobile southbound on Route 125 when she was struck by a dump truck. Moments after the car crash in New Hampshire, as passersby made their way toward her damaged vehicle, the car’s engine caught on fire. The woman and her passenger were rescued from the flaming car, and police on the scene managed to put out the flames. The severity of the driver’s injuries was not made public. Both the driver and her passenger were sent to local hospitals for treatment.

The 29-year-old driver of the 2007 dump truck that struck was attempting to turn onto Roadstone Drive when the truck crossed the dividing line into oncoming traffic, consequently striking the woman’s vehicle in the process. A police chief said that the accident remains under investigation.

Negligence in this case can fall on the shoulders of multiple parties. Dangerous driving practice can hold the driver of the dump truck to blame, faulty brakes or other equipment failure on the dump truck itself can represent blame on the part of the owner of the dump truck. Negligence can even be attributed to the city or other governing body if dangerous road conditions, such as inoperable and/or malfunctioning traffic signals played a role in causing the accident. Regardless of who is deemed to be the responsible party, negligence will undoubtedly be revealed to have played a major role in causing this accident that consequently injured two people and potentially could have harmed even more.
