Concord woman hospitalized after fatal crash
A young Concord woman was in critical condition as of yesterday afternoon after a two-car, head-on crash in Hooksett on Sunday night that left a Manchester man dead.
The Hooksett police said in a press release that 20-year-old Ashley Louis of Concord was taken to Catholic Medical Center in Manchester, while Roosevelt Fraga, 69, was transported to Elliot Hospital in Manchester, where he later died of his injuries.
Few details were released, but the police said two vehicles crashed head-on Sunday about 6:36 p.m. on Route 3A in Hooksett, south of Hackett Hill Road.
Route 3A, also known as West River Road, was closed for several hours as traffic was diverted around the scene. The Hooksett police were assisted by the state police Accident Reconstruction Unit, and the accident was still under investigation by late yesterday afternoon.
A message was left for Sgt. Steve Wheeler of the state police, but further information from law enforcement agencies was not expected to be released until today.
A spokeswoman at Catholic Medical Center would not reveal Louis’s condition, saying only family members were entitled to that information.
Attempts to contact family and friends of Louis were unsuccessful, as there was no local listing under her name or information on Facebook.
