Killed, 4 Injured in 3-Vehicle Crash on New Hampshire Roadway

Prosecutors may file charges after a three-vehicle accident on November 1, 2016, at the intersection of Route 111 and Ermer Road took the life of an elderly woman, according to police.

Around 4:39 p.m., police and firefighters responded to the intersection of Route 111 and Ermer Road for a report of a serious crash.

The driver of the Kia, who police did not identify by age or sex, was taken to Elliot Hospital in Manchester, also with life-threatening injuries.

Authorities said a Honda Accord, driven by a 45-year-old man, turned westbound onto Route 111 striking a Kia Optima traveling west bound.

That impact pushed the Kia into the eastbound lane of Route 111, where it slammed head-on into a 1993 Toyota Camry driven by a 58-year-old man, according to police.

Police declined to identify the people involved until their families have been notified.

The driver of the Toyota, a 58-year-old man, was taken to the hospital via MedFlight to Beth-Israel Hospital.

The driver of the first auto was treated and released from the scene with minor injuries.

"We are working with the Rockingham County Attorney's Office to determine what if any charges will be brought as a result of this accident", said Salem Police Capt. Joel Dolan.

The names of the vehicles' occupants have not been released.

Police said Rt. 111 will be closed from Zachary's Crossing to Island Pond Road in Derry for an undetermined amount of time on Wednesday.
