Three young adults walked away unscathed after their car went into a Francestown brook.

On Saturday, May 20, at approximately 12:45 p.m., Francestown Police and Fire responded to a single-car accident on Russell Station Road near Rand Brook. According to Francestown Fire Chief Larry Kullgren, three young adults were traveling on Russell Station Road when the driver lost control just before crossing the bridge, causing the vehicle to launch into the Rand Brook. Upon impact with the water, the car flipped over.

The driver and both passengers were not injured.

Following the accident, Duval’s Towing in Goffstown retrieved the vehicle from the brook using a crane. According to Kullgren, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) was contacted shortly after the accident to make sure no oil from the car spilled into the brook. The NHDES has not taken any action at this time.

Kullgren said the three people in the car were fortunate to not sustain any injuries.

“They were obviously lucky. It was a good outcome,” said Kullgren. 

According to Kullgren, the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
