Maryland man is in serious condition after coliding with Tow TrucK


Recommended Posts

ANTRIM — A Maryland man is in serious condition following a Tuesday afternoon crash on Route 202 in which he crossed the center line and collided with the bed of a flatbed tow truck, according to police.

“We still don’t know why he did that,” said Antrim Police Chief Scott Lester. He said it is unclear if some sort of medical emergency might have contributed.


Lester said the man was driving a two-door Jeep Wrangler from Hillsborough toward Antrim. Witnesses told police the Jeep was passing another car, Lester said. The tow truck driver took evasive action to get away from the Jeep, Lester said, but the Jeep crashed into the bed of the tow truck anyway. The tow truck, registered out of Epsom, was towing a Ford F-250 truck.


The Jeep driver was taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon via helicopter. The tow truck driver sustained a minor leg injury, and the two teen passengers in the Jeep, unrelated to the Jeep driver, also sustained minor injuries in the crash.


Their names were not released Tuesday.


Route 202 was closed for several hours that day as people were treated and the vehicles were cleared from the scene.


The accident remains under investigation.
