Rindge teen recovering after ride on car’s hood, fall
Police responded to the parking lot on the evening of May 31 for a 911 call, said Police Chief Frank Morrill on Monday.
When police, Rindge Fire and Rescue, and Jaffrey-Rindge Ambulance arrived they found two teen girls had been injured in a single-vehicle accident.
“Mr. Haase thought it would be funny to drive the car around the parking lot while kids were sitting on the hood,” Morrill said.
The Jaffrey girl was examined at the scene and waived medical attention. She left with her parents who took her to seek medical care.
The decision was made to life-flight her by medical helicopter from the Cathedral of the Pines to UMass Medical Center in Worcester, Mass.
“She sustained seven stiches to the head, a minor skull fracture, a concussion and a severely sprained neck and is expected to make a full recovery at this point,” he said.
It is likely Haase would be charged with a motor vehicle violation of either reckless operation or negligent driving, Morrill said.
Potentially everyone who was hanging out in the school parking lot could be charged with trespassing.
He is waiting to hear from school officials and whether the officials want to deal with the matter internally.
School policy prohibits people from loitering on school grounds after dark unless there is an event with adult supervision, he said. “It may be an opportunity to educate the rest of the community that this policy exists.”
