Hampstead driver who caused outage found at Burger King


BRENTWOOD - A Hampstead woman will not face charges after she left the scene of an accident that knocked out traffic lights at a busy intersection for several hours Monday morning.

Police said Janet Gibbs, 54, told officers that her 2003 Volkswagen Jetta slid on something on the road surface while traveling south on Route 125, causing her to lose control, go off the roadway and strike a guardrail at the intersection of routes 125 and 111A, police Sgt. Denny Wood said.

The guardrail then struck the traffic light control box, leaving the traffic lights at the intersection inoperable for several hours following the crash, Wood said.

Police were unable to locate Gibbs when they arrived at the scene. She was later found by state police at a Burger King in Epping, Wood said.

Gibbs had no phone to contact police and told police she was given a ride to Burger King by a Good Samaritan, Wood said.

Gibbs wasn't hurt in the crash.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.

Brentwood police were assisted by officers from Fremont, Kingston and state police.
