BARRINGTON – Two people sustained what police are calling non-life-threatening injuries after being involved in a three-vehicle crash along Route 125 Wednesday morning.
Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded around 7:40 a.m. after a pickup truck and two cars crashed along Calef's Highway - Route 125 – near southern entrance of the Good & Plenty Restaurant.
Fire Chief Rick Walker said the accident occurred after one of the vehicles stopped to make a left turn and was hit from behind by a second vehicle, pushing it into a third vehicle in the oncoming lane.
"Consequently, they were nearly hit head-on," Walker said, who noted the drivers were the sole occupants in all three vehicles. He said their identities were not immediately available.
He said two drivers were still in their vehicles when firefighters arrived, but they did not need to be extricated. He said the third driver was already out of the vehicle.
"It appears the injuries were nothing life threatening," Walker said, adding two of the drivers were taken to Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester as a precaution, but the third driver declined assistance.
Walker said ambulance crews from McGregor and Frisbie Memorial Hospital transported the two patients. He said Strafford County sheriff's deputies and N.H. state troopers also responded to help with traffic.
