HOOKSETT — Two motorists were hospitalized with serious bodily injuries after a three-car crash at Hooksett Road and Dale Street Friday afternoon.

State Police said shortly after noon Friday, Rebecca Webster, 69, of Candia was driving southbound on Hooksett Road (Route 3) in her 2007 Saab 9-3 when she crossed into the northbound lanes and struck nearly head-on a 2005 Toyota Corolla that John Tousignant, 51, of Concord, was operating.

The Corolla then struck a 2013 Toyota Rav 4 that Mary Myers, 61, of Deerfield was driving.

Both Webster and Tousignant were brought to Elliott Hospital and treated for serious bodily injuries. The third driver, Myers, was also transported to the same hospital for evaluation.

Sgt. Steven Wheeler said it appears from initial investigation that Webster was driving her Saab on a flat tire which played a role in the collision, but State Police are looking into all possible scenarios.

Traffic was slowed in the area while crews cleared the scene; a portion of Hooksett Road was reduced to one lane. An accident reconstruction team was on hand for several hours following the crash.

The Hooksett Police, Fire and Allenstown Fire and Tri-Town Ambulance assisted in dealing with the crash along with the state Department of Transportation.

Anyone who observed the crash or the Saab’s operation prior to the accident is urged to call State Trooper First Class Bryan Plamondon at 223-8677 or to email him at bryan.plamondon@dos.nh.gov.
