The scene of Sunday's two-car accident on Carl Broggi Highway in Lebanon.

State Trooper Kyle Wells said 19-year-old Chastity Morton was attempting to make a turn from the southbound lane when her Dodge Stratus smacked into a northbound car operated by 18-year-old Eric Beaudoin of Rochester, N.H.

The force of the impact cut the child's face and caused Morton to complain of neck pain, but Beaudoin and his two passengers did not suffer any injuries.

Wells said the child, Madison Finnegan, was properly restrained in a child seat at the time. Morton and Finnegan were transported by ambulance to Frisbie Hospital in Rochester, N.H. Their injuries do not appear to be serious.

Wells said he remains uncertain as to why the two drivers did not see each other. The road, which is also known as Route 202, was shut down for about 15 minutes.

The accident, which remains under investigation, took place at 6:26 p.m.Sunday.
