NASHUA –– Two unrelated accidents on Monday in Nashua left a 12-year-old boy and a man seriously injured, according to local police.
In the first incident, police, firefighters, and AMR personnel responded to a report of a bicycle accident involving a child at the intersection of East Dunstable Road and Harris Avenue.
The boy, who was initially unconscious, collided with a vehicle while riding his bicycle and was immediately given medical treatment by a New Hampshire State Trooper already at the scene.
A medical helicopter was requested and the boy was quickly treated and transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical.
From there, the child was flown to a Boston hospital for further treatment. According to Nashua Police Sgt. John Cinelli, the boy is expected to survive.
A subsequent accident was reported at around 5:35 p.m. near Fowell Avenue on Main Street.
This incident involved a pickup truck that veered off the roadway, took down a street sign, and split a utility pole.
The driver of the truck was injured and treated at the scene by Nashua firefighters and AMR personnel before being transported to Southern NH Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
Despite the damage to the utility pole, there were no reported power outages in the area. The investigations of both accidents are currently being handled by the Nashua Police.
