Two-car collision in Temple leaves 3 with minor injuries
TEMPLE — Remnants of a weekend storm were still affecting roads Monday morning, and were the likely cause of a two-car collision that sent three people to the hospital early Monday.
At about 7:15 on Monday, two vehicles, a Toyota Corolla and a Dodge minivan, were traveling in opposite directions on Route 101 in Temple, when the two to collided head on. Police have not yet released the ages or names of the three people involved.
Temple-Greenville Police Chief James McTague confirmed Monday that the Toyota was carrying a man and a woman, and the Dodge was driven by a woman, all of whom were adults. The three were transported to Monadnock Community Hospital by Wilton-Lyndeborough Ambulance and Souhegan Valley Ambulance Service with minor, non-life threatening injuries, he said.
Both of the vehicles were totalled, and were towed from the scene, according to McTague.
It is not known at this time which car was the cause of the accident, according to McTague. It appears road conditions were a contributing factor.
“When we get a big storm, we have very few accidents,” said McTague. “It’s when they get plowing and drivers see the pavement that they pick their speed up, and that’s when you get more accidents.”
