Two people were sent to hospitals with serious injuries and a third person was charged with negligent driving after a crash involving three cars on Route 11 in Wilmot on Tuesday morning.

State police said about 8:27 a.m. a Toyota Highlander driven by Trevor Redman, 23, of Bristol was heading east near Kearsarge Valley Road when he veered left over the solid double-yellow line and hit a Jeep Commander headed in the opposite direction. Police alleged Redman was reaching for a drink on the car’s passenger side when he veered over the yellow lines.

The impact forced the Jeep, driven by Cynthia Bickford, 52, of Loudon to spin across the yellow lines into the opposite lane where it hit a Toyota Tacoma, driven by 48-year-old David Mallard of Sandwich.

Mallard suffered multiple lacerations and bone fractures and was airlifted to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon. Volunteer firefighters from Wilmot, with the help of New London firefighters, cut the top off the Tacoma to rescue Mallard.

Bickford suffered head lacerations as well as back pain and other minor injuries. He was taken to New London Hospital, according to police.

Redman, who was not injured, was charged with negligent driving and a yellow/solid line violation.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or has information about it is asked to call Trooper Eric Mercer at 223-4381 or email Eric.Mercer@dos.nh.gov.
