Police say failure to stop at sign likely cause of Saturday crash in Gilford

GILFORD — A Bridgewater woman was ejected from her Chrysler Town and County van during a collision at the intersection of Hoyt Road and Gilford Avenue at 9 a.m. Saturday.
Gilford Police said Lacy Barrows of 2320 River Road was taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia, from where she was taken by helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital with what police described a serious injuries.
The other person in the collision was Douglas Page of 719 Gilford Avenue in Gilford. Page was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado and was uninjured.
Det. Sgt. Christopher Jacques said Barrows was exiting Hoyt Road and Page was headed east toward Gilford Village. Preliminarily, he said, evidence at the scene suggests she didn't stop at the stop sign at the end of Hoyt Road.
He said it appears Barrow's van hit the passenger side of Page's truck.
The Belknap Regional Accident Investigation Team investigated and one lane of Gilford Avenue was closed for several hours.
Jacques said as of mid-day yesterday Barrows was listed in stable condition at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
