On February 26, 2018 at approximately 4:55 A.M. Rochester Police, Fire and Frisbie Memorial Hospital EMS responded to a report of a motor vehicle accident near the intersection of Meaderboro Road and Evans Road. The initial report was that a single vehicle had struck a tree.
Officials on scene determined that a 2006 Toyota Scion being operated by Mark Howard, 48 of Farmington, New Hampshire was travelling South on Meaderboro Road when he swerved to avoid a deceased animal in the roadway. Howard lost control of the vehicle due to the icy road conditions and he struck a tree head on. The Scion sustained significant front end damage. Howard was transported to Frisbie Memorial Hospital with minor non-life threatening injuries. The roadway was shut down for a short period of time to allow the vehicle to be towed from the scene.
If anyone has any information in reference to this accident they are asked to contact Officer Seager at the Rochester Police Department at (603)330-7128.
