One injured in 3-car accident on Union Ave.

LACONIA – One person was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital yesterday morning after her passenger car appeared to have been struck from the rear on Union Avenue.

Police said her car was pushed into the car in front of her.

Fire Department Lt. Dave French said the crash happened in front of Laconia High School just after 11 a.m. He described the woman's injuries as non life-threatening.

He said the cars were able to be driven from the road and said all appeared to be headed in the same direction.

He said both drivers in the two primary cars were alone and the man driving the pickup declined medical treatment.

He said the passenger car didn't appear to be badly damaged, but the pickup was towed. He said it sustained considerable front-end damage that ruined the radiator.
