GOFFSTOWN — A woman was transported to Catholic Medical Center on Saturday evening after a medical emergency that caused her to drive her car into a parked vehicle on the lot of Northstar Auto Sales in Goffstown.

At approximately 5:22 p.m., a woman whose name police have yet to release was traveling in a southeasterly direction on Mast Road in a silver Toyota sedan when she experienced an unspecified medical emergency that caused her to lose control of the vehicle, police said.

The woman then veered off the road onto the Northstar lot where she hit a red Ford sedan that belonged to the dealership. When her car came to a complete stop, the woman’s Toyota was resting directly on top of the Ford’s hood.

The force of the impact also caused the Ford to roll back and rear end a pickup truck that was on the lot.

Krystal Watkins, a Northstar sales associate who was on the lot at the time of the crash, said that several bystanders immediately jumped in to help the woman.

“A bunch of people tried to smash her back window to get her out,” said Watkins of the moments after the crash. “Her lips were blue and purple, so we laid her on her side to get her breathing while we called 911.”

Although the driver was unresponsive when the Samaritans pulled her from the vehicle, Watkins said that the woman did not seem visibly injured. Watkins went on to say that there was a Yorkshire terrier in the car that also appeared unharmed.

After securing the scene, first responders transported the driver to CMC for further evaluation and brought the dog to a local animal shelter.

While police would not specify the type of medical emergency that the driver experienced, they did state that the incident was not the result of a drug overdose.
