DRIVER CITED WITH FAILING TO YIELD FOLLOWING MOTOR VEHICLE CRASH

Dunbarton, N.H. - On Friday, February 3rd 2017 around 1:30 P.M., Dunbarton Police Officer Ralph McClellan and Dunbarton Fire/EMS personnel were dispatched to the intersection of Stark Highway North (Route 13) and Concord Stage Road (Route 77), otherwise known as "Page's Corner," for a report of a motor vehicle collision involving two vehicles with entrapment and injuries.

On scene investigation revealed that a GM pickup truck being driven by Robert Boutwell of Contoocook, NH had stopped at the intersection and then proceeded to travel southbound towards Stark Highway North from Jewett Road. Boutwell pulled out in front of a tractor trailer being driven westbound by Jeffrey Divoll of Sandown, NH. Divoll couldn't stop in time to avoid colliding with Boutwell in the intersection.

Boutwell had to be extracted from his pickup truck and sustained minor injuries in the crash. He was evaluated on scene by Dunbarton EMS personnel. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage in the crash and were towed from the scene.

Boutwell was issued a citation for failing to yield the right-of-way.
