Gilmanton woman, infant pulled from car in crash
GILMANTON - Police say speed was a factor in an accident that trapped a woman and an infant boy in her car early Tuesday afternoon.
Police Chief Joseph Collins said Nakayla K. Lacroix, 20, of Gilmanton, was driving on Middle Route at 12:37 p.m. when her car left the road.
"The vehicle had been traveling east and the driver veered off the road before striking a tree head-on," Collins said in a news release.
Rescue crews found Lacroix pinned inside a 1994 Toyota Camry, surrounded by airbags that deployed in the collision, police said. She was not wearing her seat belt at the time of the collision, police said.
The Gilmanton Fire Department used extrication equipment to remove Lacroix from the vehicle. She was transported to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia with non-life-threatening injuries.
The infant, who was strapped into in a child seat in the back seat, was removed and was not injured.
"Speed appears to be a factor, and the collision is still under investigation," Collins said.
