19-year-old charged with reckless driving after crash

BELMONT — Three young people were taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital after the car they were in left the road yesterday morning and hit a stone wall.

Police said Trevor M. Partridge, 19, no address given, of Belmont was driving along Province Road (Route 107) at an alleged high rate of speed when his car struck the stone wall at Dow Cemetery near the intersection of Hoadley Road. He was charged with one count of reckless driving and one count of driving without a valid license.

Partridge, passenger Scott Coburn, 21, no address given, and a second juvenile passenger were all taken by Belmont Fire and Rescue by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia with what fire officials described as non life-threatening injuries.

Police said the front end of the small 4-door sedan was heavily damaged.

Fire officials said two of the men needed to be helped from the car while one was able to get out on his own. They said they didn't need to use extrication tools.

Partridge was given a court date of September 19 in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division.
