MARLOW — After a lengthy rescue operation, an accident victim was airlifted to a Lebanon hospital with serious injuries following a one-car crash Thursday night, according to local officials.
Fire Chief Sean Brewer said crews were first sent at 9:48 p.m. to the New Hampshire side of Route 123 in town and found a single vehicle lying on its side in the middle of the road.
Police officer Kevin Fay was already tending to the lone occupant of the car, Brewer said. Emergency equipment was needed to crack open the car so the trapped driver could be removed, officials said.
The patient was then flown by helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
Brewer said there was “strong work by all” departments that responded, including Lempster Fire and Rescue; Gilsum Fire; Diluzio Ambulance; the Marlow, Walpole and Alstead police departments; and New Hampshire State Police.
There was no updated information on the unidentified patient’s condition, officials said.
