Motorist, 88, rams van of motorist, 92 causing water main break

GREENLAND - A water main break in Greenland was caused by an 88-year-old motorist backing his car into a vehicle operated by 92-year-old motorist, snapping a fire hydrant on Post Road.

Greenland police said Edward Bennett, 88, was attempting to back into his garage when he lost control of his Buick LeSabre sedan, crashing through the garage door and hitting a parked car and the interior garage wall.

Bennett then put the car in drive and it then careened out of control, crashing into Zona’s van and knocking it into a fire hydrant.
Both drivers were taken to Portsmouth Regional Hospital treatment. Both cars were extensively damaged, police said.
