Mass. car leaves Rte. 106 & smacks tree

GILMANTON — Two Massachusetts residents were taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital Thursday after the car they were in left the road just after 5 p.m. on Route 106 and struck a tree.
Sgt. Matt Currier said the driver told police she swerved to avoid a truck and lost control of her car. He said it appeared the passenger side front part of the vehicle was most severely damaged.
Two people were taken by Belmont and Gilmanton ambulances to the hospital with what he described as non life-threatening injuries.
He said the accident remains under investigation but neither speed nor alcohol appear to have been factors.
