ENFIELD - A collision involving a car and two motorcycles shut down a portion Route 4A in both directions for most of the afternoon on Monday, and left one of the motorcycle drivers in critical condition.
The driver of the car, Katherine MacDonald, 39, of Wayland, Mass., was traveling south and was attempting to take a left onto a private road when her car collided with two northbound motorcycles, according to Enfield Police Chief Richard Crate Jr.
The driver of one of the motorcycles, David Breault, 54, of Franklin, was taken by ambulance to Dartmouth Hitchock Medical Center in Lebanon, where he was listed in critical condition as of Monday night, according to a hospital spokesperson. Breault's wife, Donna Breault, 53, also of Franklin, was driving the other motorcycle. She and MacDonald were both treated at the scene and not hospitalized, according to Crate.
Route 4A was closed from the intersection of Route 4 in Lebanon to the intersection of Shaker Hill Road, from noon to about 4 p.m., as local police were assisted by the N.H. State Police Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team.
Crate said there was no suspicion of alcohol or drug use, and that preliminary investigation suggests the motorist was using her seatbelt, while the two motorcylists were wearing helmets.
The accident remains under investigation.
