MANCHESTER, NH – Police are clearing the scene of a two-vehicle crash that left one vehicle crashing into a pole and that driver with serious injury.
The crash occurred Tuesday at approximately 10:30 a.m. on Maple Street. Manchester Police said one woman needed to be cut from her Jeep and is now at the hospital.
Preliminary investigation indicates a blue Jeep appears to have been traveling west on Amherst Street when it was struck by a small SUV traveling north, hitting the Jeep and pushing it into the utility pole.
The driver of the Jeep appears to have been thrown into the passenger side of the vehicle as it struck the pole. Manchester Fire personnel found the woman was heavily entrapped and began to extricate using the Jaws of Life. Her condition was reportedly “Status 1,” the most serious, and a trauma alert was activated at the Elliot Hospital while the extrication was underway.
The unstable utility pole had to be avoided due to the proximity of the scene, and Eversource was dispatched to assist. The woman was extricated from the vehicle and transported. A second ambulance came to the scene to transport the other driver for a medical evaluation but the driver appeared to be uninjured.
The road will be closed between Hanover and Concord streets for pole repair, police said.
