JEFFERSON - A local woman was airlifted to a Lebanon hospital for treatment of serious injuries Wednesday night after her car collided with a moose on Route 116.

Police said Maureen Couture, 48, first was taken to Weeks Memorial Hospital in Lancaster and then transferred by helicopter to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center because of "significant injury," according to a news release issued by state police in Twin Mountain.

The crash happened at 7:07 p.m. when Couture was driving a 2005 Volkswagen Beetle on Route 116. A passenger in the car, Russ Hawkins, 49, also of Jefferson, was taken to Weeks Memorial where he was treated and later released.

State police said Couture was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol. A court date has yet to be set.
