Merrimack Car Accident Leaves One Injured
A Merrimack car accident involving two vehicles leaves at least one man injured after the vehicles collide during rush-hour traffic. The incident took place at approximately 7:30 AM on Wednesday morning, February 24, 2010, along Back River Road.
According to police, the wreck occurred when 39-year-old Christopher Pederson, who was driving a 2005 Nissan Altima southbound on Back River Road, apparently lost control of his vehicle. Pederson’s car slid into the northbound land and struck a 2008 BMW head-on. The driver of the BMW has been identified as 47-year-old Weir Lundstedt.
Rescue crews transported Pederson to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua where he was treated for injuries sustained in the crash. His injuries have been described as non-life threatening.
It was unclear as to whether Lundstedt was injured in the two-vehicle wreck, which occurred near the entrance to Bradford Wood condominium complex.
Morning commuters were inconvenienced for several hours in both directions as crews cleared the accident scene.
The Merrimack accident is still under investigation by local authorities. The cause of the accident has not been determined at this point.
Injuries sustained in a car accident can pose difficulties for those involved. Our thoughts go out to both victims and we wish them both a speedy recovery.
