Manchester man seriously injured after driving into oncoming traffic
BEDFORD — A Manchester man suffered life-threatening injuries Monday when he drove into oncoming traffic, according to a police press release.
Police said the 20-year-old man, whose name was not available, was driving a 1999 Ford Contour west on Route 101 between Covenant Way and Jenkins Road when, for an unknown reason, he drove across the road’s center line, hitting a trailer being towed by a truck before swerving head on into a 2004 Chevrolet 2500 pickup truck.
The driver of the pickup truck, identified by police only as a 49-year-old Bedford woman, was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life threatening.
The man in the Contour was flown to an out-of-state hospital — police did not say which one.
