ROLLINSFORD — A Somersworth man was sent to a Boston hospital after being ejected from his vehicle following an accident along Roberts Road early Monday morning.

Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded at 2:13 a.m. after a northbound 1999 Mercury Mountaineer, driven by Allen H. Kinsman, 49, of Highland Street in Somersworth, struck a group of trees.

Upon arriving, Kinsman, who was ejected from the severely damaged SUV, was found lying in the road.

As a result, ambulance crews from South Berwick, Maine transported him to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover. He was later transported to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass.

Police Chief Robert Ducharme said in an e-mail that they have not received word of his status of condition.

Rollinsford fighters and members of the Strafford County Technical Accident Reconstruction Team also responded to the scene. Roberts Road was closed from 2:15 to 7:15 a.m., according to police, who continue to investigate the accident.

“Since there were no witnesses to the accident the police are trying to determine the whereabouts of the driver prior to the accident. Police are awaiting toxicology reports from the N.H. State Police Forensics Lab, which is standard procedure for this type of incident,” Ducharme said in an e-mail.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact police at (603) 742-8549.
