Meredith woman seriously injured in three-vehicle crash
MEREDITH – A 68-year-old Meredith woman was seriously injured and another driver suffered minor injuries in a three-vehicle crash on Route 104 Thursday morning, according to police.
The crash, which occurred just before 8:50 a.m. near the junction of Route 104 and Upper New Hampton Road, forced police to close the road and reroute traffic for two hours.
Mary Ellen Robertson, 68, no address given, suffered serious injuries after being trapped in the car. She was rescued from the overturned car by members of the Meredith Fire Department and Stewart’s Ambulance, police said.
Robertson, who suffered “multiple” injuries from the crash, according to police, was taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital, and then airlifted by helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, where she was hospitalized Thursday night.
Her condition and the nature of her injuries were not disclosed by police or by Dartmouth-Hitchcock officials Thursday.
Police said Robertson’s car, a 2000 Toyota RAV4, collided with a 2007 Ford F-150 driven by William Wentzell of Holderness and a 2009 Toyota Tundra driven by Matthew Dillon of Claremont.
Wentzell was suffered minor injuries in the crash, police said. Dillon was not injured.
Meredith Police Patrolman Deborah L. Dickinson was assisted in investigating the crash by Meredith Police Chief Kevin A. Morrow, Meredith Police Officer Robert Donnelly, Meredith Police Officer Robert Nedeau, New Hampshire state police, New Hampton police, Center Harbor police, officers from the Belknap County Sheriff’s Department, and the Meredith and New Hampton fire departments, and Stewart’s Ambulance.
Police said the accident is still under investigation.
