Police say alcohol and speed were factors
WALPOLE, NH - Two 19-year-olds suffered what were described as serious but not life-threatening injuries Saturday afternoon when the driver of a 1977 Chevrolet Corvette failed to negotiate a curve as he headed north on Route 123.
The 40-year Corvette left the roadway near the Walpole Transfer Station and struck a large tree before it spun nearly 180-degrees and came to rest.

Drive Raymond Gosetti of Langdon was transported by ambulance to the Cheshire Medical Center in Keene.
Passenger Zachary Ledrew of Walpole was airlifted by the DHART medical helicopter from the scene to the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.
The New Hampshire State Police said Sunday that both alcohol and speed appear to have played a role in the crash and Gosetti has already been charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated and was released on personal recognizance bail pending an upcoming arraignment in Cheshire County Superior Court.
A section of Route 123 was closed for several hours while the crash was investigated by the state police which received assistance on the scene from the Walpole Police Department, the Marlow Police Department, and the neighboring Bellows Falls, Vermont Police Department along with the Walpole Fire Department and Diluzio Ambulance Service.
Anyone with information about this collision is being asked to contact New Hampshire State Police Trooper Aramus Caraballo at (603) 223-8494.
