Driver dies of injuries after crashing in Alton


ALTON — A driver whose car went off the road and into the woods on Route 11 died of his injuries after being taken to the hospital Saturday.

First responders got the call around 5:30 p.m. and found the victim unconscious in his car just west of Minge Cove Road, fire department Lt. Justin Kantar told the Union Leader.

Rescuers had to work in a knee-deep boggy area to get the man out. He was taken by ambulance to Lakes Region General Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries, Kantar said.

The lieutenant said the man is from the Lakes Region and appeared to be in his 50s, but his identity has not been released.
