CHESTERFIELD, N.H. — A Bennington, Vt., woman is in critical condition after a car crash on Route 9 on Sunday.

According to information from the Chesterfield Police Department, at just about 6:30 p.m., Katie Greene, 30, was traveling east on Route 9 in the passing lane in a 2011 Kia Rio when she struck from behind a vehicle that was stopped while the driver was waiting to turn left on to Friedsam Road.

Greene was in critical condition at the crash site. She was airlifted to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, Mass.

Linda Davis, 72, and Robert Davis, 73, of Winchester, N.H., were in a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek waiting to make a left turn when they were struck from behind. They sustained non-life threatening injuries and were transported by ambulance to the Brattleboro Memorial Hospital for treatment.

After Greene's vehicle struck the Davis vehicle, her Kia spun 180 degrees before striking another Crosstrek, this one being driven by Katherine Cummings, 61, of Spofford, N.H. Cummings was released at the scene with no reported injuries.

According to information from the police department, witnesses said Greene's vehicle appeared to be traveling "at or above the posted speed limit of 50 mph."
