The holiday season and the beginning of the New Year are packed full of parties and other gatherings, but it is also accompanied by inclement weather and increasingly dangerous driving conditions. According to a unionleader.com article, numerous traffic accidents resulting from poor weather conditions have taken place throughout New Hampshire as of late. Reportedly, even before the snowfall on December 5, 2009, dozens of cars had slid off of roadways, with injuries and even some fatalities taking place as a result.
The article discusses a pedestrian accident that took the life of an 85-year-old Barrington woman, struck by a vehicle driven by a 74-year-old motorist. Two men lost their lives in Rochester after being ejected from their vehicle in a traffic accident that involved striking a telephone pole. Allegedly, excessive speed and alcohol both played a factor in the crash. Another accident involved a motorist driving a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix that swerved into oncoming traffic, and collided with a 2009 Ford F-150 pickup truck.
Route 302 at Crawford Notch was shut down for a stretch after eight vehicles reportedly slid off the road there. Dangerous road conditions, inclement weather, driver inattention, and reckless driving practice are all factors that can quickly lead to a New Hampshire car accident. All automobile accidents need to be carefully examined to determine their exact cause and whether or not negligent action was a contributing factor.
