BARNSTEAD – A local woman was airlifted by helicopter in critical condition to a Lebanon hospital after she was run over by a car early Sunday afternoon, authorities said.
Fire Department Lt. Brian Cottrell would only identify the woman as a Barnstead resident. She was struck at about 12:45 p.m., he said.
"The police are investigating the circumstances and I can't comment on that," Cottrell said.
The woman suffered numerous injuries, he said.
"She had all kinds of injuries," he said. "She was in very bad shape."
A DHART helicopter landed near the town's elementary school and flew her to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center at 1:21 p.m., he said.
