A 19-year-old man was killed in a head-on crash on Route 107 in Belmont Tuesday morning.

For reasons that are unknown, the 2003 Honda Civic driven by Jackson Brulotte, 19, of Gilmanton Iron Works crossed the center line and struck another car that was heading north. Brulotte died a short time after the crash, police said.

The driver of the other vehicle, Timothy Stevens, 18, of Gilmanton, was taken to the Lakes Region General Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Stevens remained hospitalized Wednesday. His family said he was in stable condition but faces an extended recovery time, according to Belmont police Capt. Rich Mann.

Brulotte was driving southbound on Route 107 and Stevens was driving northbound in a 1997 Honda CRV between Brown Hill Road and Rogers Road. The speed on that stretch of road is 40 miles per hour.

Multiple motorists who came upon the scene, including Belmont police Chief Mark Lewandoski who was on his way to the station, tried to render first aid to the drivers.

Both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles by members of the Belmont, Laconia and Gilmanton fire departments.

“On behalf of all the emergency responders, we want to extend our thoughts to the families of both of these drivers, especially to the family of the deceased driver,” Mann said.

The investigation into the accident is ongoing with the assistance of the Belknap Regional Accident Investigation Team, Mann said.
