New Hampshire Struck By String Of Worrying Crashes
Thanksgiving Weekend is the most dangerous time of the year to drive in the United States, and a string of crashes in New Hampshire has proven that the Granite State is certainly no exception to this rule. Some of these crashes have resulted in critical injuries, while others have resulted in fatalities. Perhaps the worst of these crashes have been hit-and-runs, leaving victims without answers and without a clear path to justice. But what can you do if you’ve been injured in a car crash?
Three Injured in Nashua Hit-and-Run
On November 28th, it was reported that three people had been injured in Nashua after a hit-and-run crash. All three of the victims were pedestrians, with one suffering serious injuries and the others suffering minor issues. The vehicle is believed to be a dark Toyota Rav4, and police are urging anyone with information to come forward. If you are ever in a hit-and run, either while in your vehicle, or as a pedestrian, if you have a New Hampshire auto insurance policy, you may be able to make a claim against your own uninsured motorist coverage for your injuries.
21-Year-Old University Student Dies in New Hampshire Crash
On November 28th, it was reported that a young college student had lost her life after a car crash in New Hampshire. She was attending Salve Regina University. The accident seems to have been a single-vehicle accident that involved a rollover on Route 1 Bypass South. The vehicle allegedly rolled several times before finally coming to a halt on the grass in the middle of a traffic circle. The deceased individual was not behind the wheel, and she was one of five occupants in the vehicle.
According to police, “several passengers were ejected” during the rollover, which suggests that they may not have been wearing their seatbelts. New Hampshire is the only state that has no law requiring adults to wear seat belts in vehicles. This means that if you were injured because you failed to wear your seatbelt, the defendant cannot use this against you as a sign of your own liability.
Yet Another Restaurant Struck by Drunk Driver
While Thanksgiving Weekend is a dangerous time for drivers, crashes happen all the time in New Hampshire. On November 20th, it was reported a vehicle had been damaged by a drunk driver. The driver drove his pickup truck straight through the window of Greg’s Bistro in Hampton – a phenomenon that seems to happen on a regular basis in the Granite State. Three people inside the restaurant were hospitalized, suffering injuries as the truck came smashing into the restaurant out of nowhere.
