Two drivers hurt in crash on Everett Turnpike Friday
According to state police, Carol Maffetione, 63, of Manchester was driving north between Exits 1 and 2 shortly after 9:30 p.m. when her 2004 Honda drifted into the breakdown lane and hit the guard rail head-on. The vehicle came to rest across the right travel and breakdown lanes.
Another driver, Albert Champagne, 62, of Portsmouth came upon the Honda, crashing into it and then striking the guard rail. The impact pushed the Honda even further into the roadway and left Champagne's 1995 Ford facing oncoming traffic, police said.
Maffetione was taken to St. Joseph Hospital and Champagne was taken to Southern New Hampshire Regional Medical Center. Both were admitted with serious injuries, police said.
Traffic on the turnpike was reduced to one lane for about 45 minutes after the crash while state police investigated.
Police are asking anyone who witnessed or has information about the crash to contact Trooper D.C. Myer at Troop B at 666-3333.
State police said this was the second serious crash on the turnpike in as many nights. With the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, state police plan an increased presence on the roadways.
