CHESTERFIELD, N.H. — A three-vehicle crash on Route 9 Tuesday morning sent three people to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

According to the New Hampshire State Police, at 7:25 a.m., troopers responded to the accident on Route 9 at the intersection of Old Chesterfield Road and Pontiac Drive.

A preliminary investigation found that Nicholas Lentine, 35, of Pownal, Vt., was driving a Ford F-150 pickup truck east on Route 9 when he collided with a Chevrolet Equinox operated by Barbara Mulherin, 52, of Brattleboro, Vt., who was traveling ahead of him in the same direction.
