Sanbornton woman named as victim of Belmont crash
The police yesterday identified a Sanbornton woman as the victim of a fatal car crash in Belmont on Friday afternoon.
Carol Simpson, 32, was driving south on Route
106, just north of the Gilmanton town line, when the vehicle she was driving crossed the center line, according
to a news release from
the Belmont Police Department.
Simpson swerved back into the southbound lane before losing control of the vehicle and sliding into the shoulder of the road. The vehicle rolled over and she was ejected, and pronounced dead at the scene, according to the release.
Simpson was a native of Biddeford, Maine, and was studying business and accounting at Lakes Region Community College. Before moving to New Hampshire, she spent 13 years working at Southern Maine
Medical Center, according to an obituary published yesterday by a Biddeford funeral home.
The Belmont Police Department and the Belknap Reconstruction Accident Investigation Team are still investigating the cause of the crash, according to the release.
