LACONIA — Two men escaped serious injury yesterday afternoon when the car they were in left upper Parade Road and landed in some trees.
According to a media release, police said a Pontiac Sunfire was on Parade Road when the driver, identified as Christopher Levreault of Warren Street, struck a culvert on the east side of the road.
Police said the preliminary investigation indicates the car went into the air and rolled end to end at least once before coming to a stop. The car was headed south on the east side of the road when it came to a stop.
Firefighters assisted Levereault in getting out of the car and he was taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital and was likely going to be held overnight for observation.
Leverault's passenger Robert Moody of Endicott Street was able to get out of the car on his own. He was also taken by ambulance to the Lakes Region General Hospital. Police expect he was going to be released last night.
Police said there was no indication that there was any braking or evasive action before the car left the road. It also doesn't appear speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
Police continue to investigate and ask that if anyone saw the crash or has any information about it to call 524-5252.
