Chichester man injured in Hooksett crash
A Chichester man was airlifted to a Boston hospital after his car allegedly crossed the center line of a Hooksett road yesterday, crashing into a car driven by an Arkansas man.
Ryan Dawson, 31, was driving on Hooksett Road, just north of College Park Drive, about 5:20 a.m., when his vehicle collided with a Chevy HHR, driven by John Wayne Beard, 70, of Little Rock, Ark., according to the police.
Dawson was airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital. His condition was unavailable last night.
Beard was airlifted to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He was listed in critical condition last night.
His passenger, Gloria Jean Beard, 67, of Little Rock, Ark., was taken to Concord Hospital, where she was in fair condition last night, according to a nursing supervisor.
The Saab that Dawson was driving was so badly damaged in the crash it was impossible to tell whether it was a sedan or wagon, Hooksett police Sgt. Kris Dupuis said.
The crash is under investigation.
