BENNINGTON — Emergency services in Bennington were dispatched to a motor vehicle accident near Harris’s store on Route 202, at approximately 3:56 p.m. yesterday.

Fire-Rescue teams from Bennington, along with personnel from Antrim Fire & Ambulance and Bennington NH Emergency Management, worked diligently to extricate the patient from the unstable vehicle. Following extraction, emergency medical services (EMS) evaluated the patient on scene before transporting them to a nearby hospital for further examination.

A trauma alert activation was requested en route to the hospital due to the severity of the patient’s injuries.

The vehicle involved in the crash was recovered by Mike’s Towing & Recovery.
