STODDARD — A Deerfield woman sustained serious leg injuries Thursday morning when her SUV crashed into guard rails on Route 9 in Stoddard.
New Hampshire State Police said Cheryl Turgeon, 51, who was driving a 2013 Dodge Durango, was headed west on Route 9, just west of the Antrim townline, when her vehicle drifted off the right side of the roadway and struck the guard rails.
Troopers from Troop C, Stoddard police and Stoddard fire and rescue responded to the crash at about 10:35 a.m. and Turgeon was removed from the SUV and taken by ambulance to Cheshire Medical Center in Keene.
She was later airlifted by DHART helicopter to Dartmouth Medical Center in Lebanon. Turgeon was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
Route 9 was shut down for about one hour.
The cause of the crash is under investigation, but speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors.
