LONDONDERRY, NH – One person suffered serious head wounds after ice flew through the windshield of his car in Londonderry on Sunday.
According to the Londonderry Patch, the accident occurred on Nashua Road, near Young Road, when ice from a Ford truck was hurled at the windshield of a grey sedan. The ice broke through the windshield, causing severe head injuries to the driver of the sedan.
The sedan driver, who has yet to be publicly identified, was taken to the hospital for treatment.
According to Londonderry Police, the truck’s speed of 55 mph made the falling ice more dangerous to other drivers.
The driver of the truck returned to the scene not long after the accident.
According to Jessica’s Law, RSA 265:79-b: Negligent Driving, it is illegal to operate a vehicle in New Hampshire without first clearing snow and ice from it.
The accident remains under investigation at this time.
