Many jumped to held in wake of serious motor vehicle accident

  • Published in Letters

To the Daily Sun, 

On Wednesday, August 7th at noontime I was involved in a three car motor vehicle accident on Route 11 next to the Scenic View. It was a serious accident, a woman lost her life and another was seriously injured. I was injured as well and had to be removed from my vehicle by Gilford and Laconia Firefighters.

I wish to express my condolences to the family of the deceased woman and to the others involved.

I would like express my gratitude to the police officers, firefighters and medical personal who responded to the scene so quickly and handled the situation so professionally. I would also like to thank the emergency room staff at Lakes Region Medicinal Center for the care they provided to me.

Last but certainly not least I would like to thank my friends from Lake Shore Park, Bob and Marilyn Henderson. Bob was on scene with in minutes to assist and Marilyn was kind enough to drive my wife Eileen to the hospital and stay with her until they knew that I was going to be alright.

I would also like to thank the the police officer who used his cell phone to call my wife in those first few moments after the accident. Thanks to all of you!

Marty Leary
