PHOTOS: West Lebanon crash sends two to hospital
Van T-boned car in front of Advance Auto Parts
WEST LEBANON, NH - Two woman were transported to the hospital with what were described as "non-life-threatening" back and leg injuries following a two-vehicle crash in front of Advance Auto Parts that occurred during what passes for rush hour on Main Street in West Lebanon right at 6 p.m. Wednesday evening.
"There was a lot of commotion at the time with Advance Transit buses pulling out and the like and it was just a perfect storm of traffic," Lebanon Police Officer Tyler Hewes said at the scene as he explained why the collision is being treated as a straight up accident with no traffic tickets or criminal charges expected to result.
A Volkswagon Jetta pulled out of the parking lot by Kielly Insurance just as buses were entering the traffic pattern from their stops by the Kilton Public Library and a van coming around past the buses then t-boned the Jetta, setting off its left side airbag and shaking but not injuring the woman driving it, Lebanon Police Sgt. Jeff Perkins said.
Ambulances from both of Lebanon's fire stations responded to the scene along with an engine company from Station Two which sits right next to the crash scene.
None of the drivers or passengers involved in the crash were from Lebanon.
