Bennington woman injured in Hancock crash

HANCOCK — A Bennington woman was injured in a crash on Route 202 Wednesday afternoon.

April Salisbury, 37, of Bennington, was taken to Monadnock Community Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Police and Hancock Fire and Rescue responded at 4:21 p.m. for a report of a two-vehicle crash.

When police arrived, one car was facing south in the southbound lane, and the second vehicle was facing north on the yellow line. Route 202 was shut down for almost an hour between Peterborough and Cavender roads while rescue operations and an investigation took place.
According to Police Chief Andrew Wood, Salisbury was driving a 2008 Nissan north on Route 202 when she attemped to make a U-turn to change direction and turned in front of a northbound 2007 Subaru driven by Olivia Wilder, 20, of Hancock.
Wilder attempted to avoid the accident, but could not stop in time, Wood said. The Subaru struck the Nissan's driver's side rear passenger door.

The Nissan suffered moderate driver's side damage, and the Subaru had significant front-end damage.
Both cars were towed from the scene.

Speed or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the accident. After investigating the crash, Wood said, Salisbury failed to yield the right of way while making a U-turn, turning into the path of Wilder's vehicle, which caused the crash.
Hancock police were assisted at the scene by the Greenfield police and Peterborough ambulance.
