GILMANTON — A Belmont woman who struck a pickup truck that police said made a U-turn in front of her on Route 106 Tuesday is in stable but serious condition at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
Lori Ann Hayes husband, Joseph, said his wife was initially treated at Lakes Region General Hospital but was taken by ambulance to Dartmouth to be treated for severe head injuries.
He said his wife underwent eight hours of surgery to treat blood on her brain and the next day had hip surgery that took an additional six hours. He said she faces more surgery in the near future.
Hayes said his wife was in great health before the accident but said she is a waitress and he fears her hip injury may prevent her from working again.
Police Chief Matt Currier said the crash is still under investigation.
