Gilford crash victim: 'I lost my mom'
Police said Kay E. Sawyer was killed in an accident that happened just before noon.
The police investigation showed that a 2008 Honda sedan driving east on the highway by Brenden J. Lefavor Hanson, 22, of Gilford, collided with Sawyer's 2003 Honda sedan, which was also traveling east.
According to police, after Sawyer's car was hit by Hanson's car, Sawyer's car struck a westbound 2006 Ford Sport utility vehicle driver by Martin Leary, 62, of Gilford.
"I lost my mom," she said. "I don't remember the accident. I just know my nephew is okay, and I'm alive, thank God."
"Details to the factors leading up to these collisions will not be released due to an ongoing investigation," Jacques said in a press release.
After the accident, the child, Burgado and Leary were taken to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia. The child and Leary were treated and released, police said. Burgado was still hospitalized late Thursday afternoon, police said.
Anyone who witnessed the accident is asked to contact Jacques at the Gilford Police Department at 527-4737 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
