Two women injured in accident in Rochester Thursday afternoon

ROCHESTER - Two women were transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries as a result of a head-on collision which closed Pickering Road for about 35 minutes this afternoon.

Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded around 4:40 p.m. after a southbound 1988 Toyota Celica, driven by Sara Garland, 21, of New Durham, struck a northbound Toyota Corolla, driven by Betty Bush, 70, of Rochester.

Paramedics transported the pair to Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover for non-life threatening injuries, according to the police.

After conducting a preliminary investigation, police believe Garland lost control of her vehicle, which caused it to cross into the northbound lane. As both vehicles suffered substantial damage, they had to be towed from the scene, which closed the road briefly. The air bags deployed on the Toyota Corolla, according to police.

Police continue to investigate the accident and anyone with information about the incident should contact Officer Justin Seckendorf at (603) 330-7128, leave an anonymous tip with the Rochester Crime Line at (603) 335-6500 or Text to: CRIMES (274637) Body of Text: TEXT4CASH + your tip. Cash rewards are offered for information that leads to an arrest.
