TOPSHAM — A Litchfield woman was taken to a local hospital with a complaint of neck pain after the sports utility vehicle she was driving west on Route 196 was rear-ended by another SUV Thursday afternoon.

The minor two-vehicle crash was reported Thursday at 4:42 p.m. in front of the Gibbs Oil gas station. Lt.
