MOULTONBOROUGH — A driver was seriously injured during a crash in Moultonborough yesterday.

Authorities were notified of a two-vehicle collision involving a tractor-trailer unit and a passenger vehicle on Whittier Highway, by Fox Hollow Road, at around 11:15 a.m.

Police say Charles O’Hara, of Moultonborough, New Hampshire, was trapped inside of his vehicle with serious injuries.

After approximately 50 minutes, O’Hara was extricated from his vehicle by fire-rescue personnel and was transported by Stewart’s Ambulance to Concord Hospital-Laconia.

According to the report, Mian Tanvir Ahmad, of Oshawa, Ontario, was traveling west on Whittier Highway, when he came around a curve in the road, just east of Fox Hollow Road, and lost control of his vehicle on the snow-covered road.

Ahmad’s vehicle then jackknifed and slid sideways down the road, where his vehicle struck and snapped a utility pole.

The force of the impact caused O’Hara’s vehicle to spin approximately 180 degrees and into a snowbank.

Both vehicles sustained extensive damage.

Ahmad’s vehicle was removed from the scene by Doug Murphy Towing of Moultonborough.

The tractor-trailer was removed from the scene by John’s Towing of Moultonborough and Rusty’s Towing of Tilton.
