BELMONT — An 18-year-old woman was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia yesterday with what fire officials said were serious but non life-threatening injuries after rolling her car on Rte. 106 near Concord Road.
Fire Chief Dave Parenti said the 2007 Chevy minivan appeared to have rolled over at least once before coming to a rest on it's side.
He said the driver was initially headed south but her vehicle landed in the northbound lane.
"She was in the air for a while, but I don't know how often she rolled," said Parenti.
Parenti said she had injuries to her leg, he head and possibly a broken wrist.
Firefighters had to cut the roof off the minivan to get her out of it. Parenti said it took them nine minutes to cut it open and get her out, which he said was a excellent job.
Police said Route 106 was closed completely for a short time and later reopened to one lane while police continued to investigate and the van was towed from the scene.
Police said it's too early to know what caused the crash and the investigation continues.
